If your project is already in debug configuration and it is selected a start up project, press F5.

Note: 1) or debug mode: Open configuration manager and check that active solution configuration is set to debug
2) Selected a start up project: Right click project and  click "Set as startUp project" menu item.

To effectively test a web service to ensure that you logic is correct and to work out the kinks and bugs I find it best to use a layered architecture.

It is important to think of your web service and a View or a point of access  for your users. In this case users can be another application whether internal or external. When you thought processes are aligned in this manner you will then need to abstract your business logic into another layer and simple call the operations from your web service.

Users  ---> Web Service ---> Business Layer/Domain Layer

This is a tried and tested principle of N-Layer architecture, however with this approach you can now unit test your code directly against the business layer and not have to worry about the web service complexities.

Unit Tests ---> Business Layer

Now do I hear you asking what about the logic that occurs in your web service method? How do you test that? My answer to your question is simple. Your business layer should implement the Facade Pattern to satisfy the operations performed by the web service thus ensuring that your web service operations only contains a single line of code.

Web Service ---> Business Layer (Facade [Compound Operation] --uses--> Business/Domain Objects)

Now I hear another question. What is the point of having a web service operation with just one line of code? A web service is just another View remember. It is simple here to expose your business functionality another way to other applications or users. It is not hear to re-write functionality!

Hope this helps.
