This provides an excellent way to parallelize development since we can work on the backend service while it is being constructed, given that the service requirements and contract have been defined beforehand.

In this recipe, we will see how to use this new feature.

In order to use this recipe, you should have Visual Studio 2012 installed and a WSDL contract. For this recipe, we will use the dynamically generated web service we implemented in the first recipe.

How to do it...

In this recipe, we are going to generate a client for a WSDL file.
