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


public interface IPaymentNotificationReceiver



    void InvoiceProcessed(string invoiceId);


public class PaymentNotificationReceiver : IPaymentNotificationReceiver


    public void InvoiceProcessed(string invoiceId)


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

            invoiceId + "'");






      behaviorConfiguration =



      <endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding"



          <dns value="localhost"/>



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






      <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"/>





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=""
