Changing Target Web Service At Runtime

While developing clients for web services, we typically add a web reference to the web service by specifying URL of the .asmx file. Adding a web service in VS.NET generates required proxy object. However, it may happen that after adding the web reference the web service is moved to some other location. In such cases the most easy way is to recreate the proxy object. But what if the same thing happens after you deploy your web service client. It would be nice to allow configurable URL so that even if original web service is moved your clients need not be recompiled. In this article we will see how to do just that.
