Messing about with WCF Test Client


Hopefully this will come in handy if you are just messing about with some WCF services and you want to test them (and you aren't able to just run them through Visual Studio using the defaults for whatever reason). Don't forget that when you run it through Visual Studio, all it's really doing is adding the WCF Test Client as a command line arg to your program.?

You can confim this by going to your project properties, debug tab and looking at the command line args.?

You can run this program yourself. The easiest way I find is to open a Visual Studio command prompt and run WcfTestClient.exe. You can then add services by adding the wsdl location of the service you want to test.?

Again, this may be obvious to some but I hadn't thought of doing this before :-)
