Default Chapter 2

In Listing 2-6, Creating the client. Can anyone explain how they created the CarRentalProxy? It shows the code for the contract and service but then jumps to the client...

About the proxy the chapter says, "The metadata can be used to generate the necessary client code. For this purpose use svcutil.exe or Add Service Reference from within Visual Studio..."

I thought you needed to host the service first before trying to create a reference/proxy, but for this example - it's not truly explained or I'm missing something.

FYI, I am a newbie to WCF and probably should have bought a beginner book but it is what it is and I have to somehow keep pushing forward.

Thanks for any help in advanced.

Hi winstonsalem,

you need to host your service before create the client. When you host your service, as explained in chapter 14, you can generate the client proxy by using the exposed wsdl.
