WCF Backward Compatibility Issue

Question :

WCF Backward Compatibility Issue,

Answer :

I have a WCF service that I have to reference from a .net 2.0 project.

I have tried to reference it using the “add web reference” method but it messes up the params.

For example, I have a method in the service that expects a char[] to be passed in, but when I add the web reference, the method expects an int[].

So then I tried to setup svcutil and it worked… kind of.
I could only get the service class to compile by adding a bunch of .net 3.0 references to my .net 2.0 project. This didn’t sit well with the architect so I’ve had to can it (and probably for the best too).
