Sharing a webreference across projects


S

Søren Reinke

Hi there

I have 1 solution (visual studio 2005) within this solution i have many
projects, they should all be able to have the same webreference to a
webservice.

But as far as i can figure out, i must have 1 webreference per project, and
not 1 for the whole solution.

How can i solve this ?

Add the same webreference to several projects. This works fine for me or am
I misunderstanding your question?

That is exactly what i am trying to prevent.

We have about 40 different programs (aspx pages) that needs to talk to
different webservices, and also a few standalone applications. All in the
same solution.

I had hoped i could add the webreferences in 1 place, and then share them.

To do that i need to have them all in the same project ?

Hi,

You cannot do this, each project is an independent entity and needs to be
able to compile by itself. You will need to include the refeence in each
project.

cheers,

One work around for this could be the following:

Create a code library (.NEt .dll) which serves as a wrapper for all of your
webservices. This way, you will only need to add a reference to a single
assembly in each of the projects requiring webservice access.

If not all applications use all of the webservices, you could create
multiple code libraries in which you logically group your webservices.

This also means that when you recompile your webservices, you will only need
to update the webservice references in one place.
