Webservice Init

I have a webservice that seems to take a good 15 seconds or so to load initially when it's called.  Is there a way to load this when the application is started?  This also occurs after 5 minutes or so, so I'm assuming it's stored in the cache and deleted, then reinitialized.

1) .NET version?

2) How extensive is the web service?

3) Are you doing anything special, or is it a straight-forward web service?

1) 1.1
2) It's a rating algorithm for insurance
3) Not really, just passing in a business object

I'm not sure why it's taking so long to init, perhaps there's something in there that's messing it up.

Compiling the web service should be fairly quick, unless you are talking about a "monster" class that has 100's of methods.  Do you have any external references, such as DLLs?

I added this webservice as a new project within the solution, then referenced the main project so I could access the classes when it's passed in.

I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it.

Ok, take a step back and give me the bigger picture:

1) Do you have something like a WinForms client hitting a web service?

2) Is it taking 15 seconds for the WinForms client to authenticate with and instantiate a web service instance?

No, these are all web pages.

What happens if you create a small test application, like a WinForms client, and create an instance to the web server?  Does it take 15 seconds to create?

I'll give it a shot, I didn't know if it was something easy or "normal", but I guess it's not (which is a good thing).

I have a web service that runs from a WinForms client, which gets creates in a second (more or less).  It is a Data Access Layer web service that wraps up access to an Oracle instance, without having to install the client on each and every workstation that needs access to the data.
