I've created a simple WCF service hosted by ASP.NET web site:

[ServiceContract]

public interface IPaymentNotificationReceiver

{

    [OperationContract]

    void InvoiceProcessed(string invoiceId);

}  


public class PaymentNotificationReceiver : IPaymentNotificationReceiver

{

    public void InvoiceProcessed(string invoiceId)

    {

        Logger.Write("'InvoiceProcessed' method was called with InvoiceId='" +

            invoiceId + "'");

    }

}

<system.serviceModel>

  <services>

    <service

      behaviorConfiguration =

        "NotificationService.PaymentNotificationReceiverBehavior"

      name="NotificationService.PaymentNotificationReceiver">

      <endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding"

        contract="NotificationService.IPaymentNotificationReceiver">

        <identity>

          <dns value="localhost"/>

        </identity>

      </endpoint>

      <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding"

          contract="IMetadataExchange"/>

    </service>

  </services>

  <behaviors>

    <serviceBehaviors>

      <behavior name="NotificationService.PaymentNotificationReceiverBehavior">

        <!-- To avoid disclosing metadata information, set the value below

          to false and remove the metadata endpoint above before deployment

        -->

        <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>

        <!-- To receive exception details in faults for debugging purposes,

          set the value below to true.  Set to false before deployment to avoid

          disclosing exception information -->

        <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true"/>

      </behavior>

    </serviceBehaviors>

  </behaviors>

</system.serviceModel>

I can add references to this service as to WCF service, as to WebService. WcfTestClient application successfully recognized service and its methods.

But "Web Service Studio" (http://webservicestudio.codeplex.com/) can't get a list of operations... Why? How to diagnose/resolve that?

    Hi tanuj, 


    The problem was in endpoint binding configuration. To be accessible from WebService it should be 'basicHttpBinding'.

    <endpoint address=""

              binding="basicHttpBinding"

              contract="NotificationService.IPaymentNotificationReceiver"/>
