WSDL.exe VS Microsoft.VSDesigner

Hi,

I am working a bit with Web Services at the moment and have recently come across something I need explained.  When a Web Reference is added to a client project the "Microsoft.VSDesigner" tool generates the proxy class for you.  SO, why would you ever require additional tools for Web Service proxy generation such as WSDL.exe..??  It seems a little redundant.  Is this just something for those too hardcore to use the .NET Development Environment and that are still writing code using Notepad..?

Cheers,
Jack

Not all the people use VS IDE for different reasons:
1. VS is too expensive for them
2. like you said, they feel they are too hardcore to use anything other than notepad.
3. They use some other editors apart from VS and notepad.

Take your pick.
If you ask me, I'd stick to VS whatever may come.

Totally agree - Developing in .NET without VS seems like way too big a headache and one that can and should be avoided.

Yup. It was okay to use text editors till ASP 3.0.
Surely not for .Net.

Thanks for the 'A'. :o)
