Basic WCF Service Application & Client Console Tester

This project presents a basic WCF Service Application and client “tester” console application in same Visual Studio solution. The WCF Service was hosted using IIS Express. A simple console “test” application connected to the service through a proxy. The service provides basic mathematical operations contracts including:

The client is expected to access the service using information available through the WSDL. I created my test client application by building a proxy using svcutil.exe http://localhost:portnumber/MathService.svcutil

Note: You should update the client proxy or reference to the server before running this in your Visual Studio IDE by first going to TestClient (Console Application) –> Connected Services –> MathServiceRef and selecting “Update Service Reference”.
