When I am trying to create a client of the service, I am getting following error when i run svcutil.

Microsoft (R) Service Model Metadata Tool

     Metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved: 'http://dev.abc.smartypig.com/ConfigurationService.svc'.

     Content Type application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8 was not supported by service http://dev.services.abc.com/ConfigurationService.svc.  The client and service bindings may be mismatched.

     The remote server returned an error: (415) Cannot process the message because the content type 'application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8' was not the expected type 'text/xml; charset=utf-8'..

 HTTP GET Error

    URI: http://dev.services.abc.com/ConfigurationService.svc

     The HTML document does not contain Web service discovery information.

 If you would like more help, type "svcutil /?"

 

 

I tried bringing only the service               http://dev.services.abc.comConfigurationService.svc   but it is not giving any error.

 

Any help!

Thanks

Did you create the service? After you create your ServiceHost, and add the ServiceEndpoint, you need to add this
ServiceMetaBehavior behavior = new ServiceMetaBehavior();
behavior.HttpGetEnabled = true;
nameofYourServiceHost.Description.Behaviors.Add(behavior);

Open in new window

In the web config we have the code as:

<behaviors>
<serviceBehaviors>
<behavior name="XXServiceBehavior">
<serviceMetadata />
      <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />
</behavior>
</serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>


So I need to add <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" />
Right?

But strange thing is that we have been working on this same service with the same web config file from last many months. never got this error message earlier while creating clients.

Yes, that is how you would do it in the config file. Hmm, no idea why it stopped working now. But lets try this to get it working again. :)
