what I normally do is wrap all functionality in one class
you then can first debug this class in a normal application, which is much easier

That's indeed what I plan to do if there is no other alternative...
But I guess there should be one

I am a huge fan of CodeSite http://www.raize.com/DevTools/CodeSite/Default.asp. I don't know how any serious developer can get by without it.

here is my experience on this problem: http://www.ciuly.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=114 
I like this one better as it only needs 2-3 minor modifications to the service project and you're off with debugging it.

Well, I have wrapped the code into a Form application, looks to be the easiest
Thanks all of you
