wrapper classes for web services

The web service I am currently using has a custom handler called .fasmx and it is accepting a byte array from a set top box.

I have been asked to create a wrapper around the web service and then expose it to the client ... what does this mean and could some one give me an example ???

thanks

It means to create a class that has methods that correspond to the web methods exposed by the service.  Since the description for the web service isn't really strong-typed, you can create wrapper classes that are strong-typed, and allows for better Intellisense.

What language are you working with?  VB.NET or C#?

but the client is going to be a STB which will use a custom protocol over HTTP (hence the file extension fasmx)to call methods on the Web service. If the client is not made in C# how would intellisense be any part of the dev process ?

The wrapper class would be responsible for creating a web service instance, and making the calls to the web methods and returning any values, etc.  I don't know how that would fit into a set-top box.  Can you give me more information about the STB?

its a client side thing and all i know about it is that it has an agent on it which when needed will call the web service thru our custom protocol.
