WCF interface contract?

Dec 7, 2009 at 3:58 PM


I'm in internship and I have to get information and try WCF Load test. I have done all the labs, and read lot of articles about it, but what i want to know is how is it possible to use a WCF interface contract with wcf load test? (As said in the usage notes purpose : "This tool takes a WCF or Fiddler2 trace file and a WCF client proxy, or a WCF interface contract, and generates a unit test that replays the same sequence of calls found in the trace file for WCF and ASMX services.")


P.S: sorry for the english, i'm french...

This is just about how you generate your proxy. You can either create one at design time using svcutil, or you can generate the proxy at runtime by giving the channel factory the type of the interface using code like this:

System.ServiceModel.ChannelFactory<Contracts.IArithmetic> arithmeticFactory = new System.ServiceModel.ChannelFactory<Contracts.IArithmetic>("Arithmetic");
