Mono web services 

Latest daily build of Mono already allows web service proxy creation, compilation and execution. I had to manually compile the wsdl.exe equivalent (called MonoWSDL.exe) and then do:

  • mono MonoWSDL.exe (outputs StockQuotes.cs proxy)
  • mcs /r:/usr/local/lib/System.Web.Services.dll /t:library StockQuotes.cs
  • write a simple console web service client app (StockQuotesClient.cs)
  • compile it using mcs /r:StockQuotes.dll StockQuotesClient.cs
  • run it with mono StockQuotesClient.exe NASDAQ MSFT

What did I get?


That's sweet. But Mono can now also do it the other way around. I can generate proxies on our platform using the standard wsdl.exe tool. Mono web services test page looks like this:

When one adds the "?wsdl" suffix to a web service endpoint WSDL is returned as expected.

I like it.
