Tutorial on consuming an aspx web service with WCF service

Hi.

I have a fairly good idea on how to consume a web service with a console application, but I would like to know how to do it using a WCF service.  Can anyone help?

No.  I have an aspx web service already created.  I want a WCF service to consume the aspx web service.

since you stated that the aspx web serice then i assume it is a rest web service

or you created a asmx webservice (soap web service)?

here i give some suggesstions to consume the both kind of web services. webservice must be configured and ready to be consumed.

if u have REST service (aspx) then

Consume the service using HttpWebRequest

if u have SOAP service (asmx) then

consume the webservice by adding the webservice as a web reference in your wcf project and create a service object then call the method.
     
On the Project menu, click Add Web Reference.
In the Add Web Reference dialog box, type the URL for the Web service in the Address text box and press ENTER.
If you set the local computer to host the Web service, the URL is http://localhost/TestService/TestService.asmx.
Click Add Reference.
Create an instance of the proxy object that was created.
Invoke the method on the proxy object.

What I have is a asmx webservice that validates a clients contact details.  I am consuming this service in a windows application.  What I would like to do, is to add a button that will call my WCF service, that will in, validate the contact details from my aspx webservice.

I was told that I would need to add an entry on my windows application's app.config file.  Does anyone know how to do this?
