Hi

I have created one wcf service. Then I added the wcf  project as reference in a web based application. Even I can use the functions defined in the service. But If I check the configuration file of the service I can see that there is no address defined.

How I can use the service if there is no address defined in the endpoint in the configuration file.

Regards
Karan Gupta

If you are using WCF 4, then defualt End Point is associated with the service, if we don’t configure any WCF endpoint.

Look at this detail article http://beyondrelational.com/blogs/dhananjaykumar/archive/2011/01/28/default-endpointsin-wcf-4-0.aspx

Then you may be set your endpoint programatically. Like

        string baseAddress = "http://localhost:8080/wcfselfhost/";
        ServiceHost host = new ServiceHost(typeof(MyService), new Uri(baseAddress));

        // Create a BasicHttpBinding instance
        BasicHttpBinding binding = new BasicHttpBinding();

        // Add a service endpoint using the created binding
        host.AddServiceEndpoint(typeof(IEcho), binding, "echo1");

        host.Open();

Go to TestService >> web.config file and there you constructed the end point (address,binding,contract) under <system.serviceModel> tag

<endpoint address="http://localhost/TestService" binding="wsHttpBinding" contract="TestService.IService1">

And I guess,  you are adding the reference using http://localhost/TestService in your TestWCFApp

Correct. The URL you are using to add service reference in your TestWCFAPP is defined in web.config of you WCF  service project (which is TestService)
