Software factory automatic proxy generator gives unexpected result

Jan 23, 2009 at 7:44 PM
When generating a proxy for my test client project it adds another method for the operational service interface, so instead of calling my service like this:

ServiceClient client = new ServiceClient();
ServiceRequest req = new ServiceRequest();
ServiceResponse res = new ServiceResponse();
res = client.QueryService(req);

.. the proxy gives typically this:

res = client.QueryService(Response object as input, out ServiceRequest) : ServiceResponse

This is completely unuseful and total crap. I found a workaround to this by running the Host, adding the services as Service References to my Client project. This gives me valid proxies, but I would appreciate if someone knew why the proxygeneration does a lot of weird things.

Did you look into the generated proxy and checked if you have the method definition that you pointed out "res = client.QueryService(req);"?
The proxy generator built in in VS that WSSF uses may generate both type of methods so you can use any of them.

Looks like 2 methods are generated. There shouldn't be a problem deleting the one i don't want. The first method in the proxy is like expected, but the second one is requiring an out as a parameter (as in code-def. example above). Still confused why this should happen. Appreciate your quick response!

These are two approaches that the code gen API gives you so you may use whichever you prefer. On the other hand, I will recommend not to remove any generated code since that may be overwritten after a new generation. Just use the method you wich and leave the rest as is.
