Set the web service url dynamically for a class library from windows service application

Hi All, I am having some issue with my web service and need some help.

I have a windows service application and it uses couple of class libraries. One of the class library has a web service and it was configured and I can't change it now. ( As I ma using dll's in my windows application)
Currently this web service is changed.

So, I want to change that class library web service url from my windows service application by using app.config file entry ( this app.config from windows service application).

Is it possible. How can I do that. If so how?

Thanks & Regards

I solely depends on your library. How does it start the service? How does it bind the service?

The service is added through the web reference to the class Library and also to my windows service application.

So, it means I have two config files I.e., one for class library and one for my windows service.

I am using my test web service and set it as dynamic in my windows service.  Based on that it has an entry in the app.config file.

I am using class Library dll's in my windows service. When I am running my service, instead of calling test web service, it is calling production service and writing info in production.  Looks like my class library has production web service in it.

So, How can I resolve this issue and how can make my class library use the test web service which is in windows service app.config file.

Hi All, thanks. I figured it out and here how I resolve the issue.

When ever we use a class library in a windows service or windows application, it always reads the main app.config file to get the config info.
So, I moved all my configuration information from the class library app.config file to the main app.config file ( which is from the windows service or windows application). That resolved my issue.

Thanks,

So your library depends on the default behaviour..
