Web Site Project: How to configure web service URL in web.config (web service defined in a referenced DLL)

I have a web site that references a business logic DLL project. In the business logic project, there is a web service defined in its app.config file something like this:

setting name="MyNamespace_BLL_MyServer_ServiceName" serializeAs="String">

When the web site is published, the web service is still available from the web site code because - despite the fact there is no app.config file in the published web site - default values are hard-coded into the business logic DLL automatically by Visual Studio.

However, I would like to be able to override the web service URL in my web.config file.

Is this possible? I tried adding a key to <appSettings> in web.config, but it didn't appear to pick that up.

You can override the URL of the web reference by modifying the .url property.

For example,

Dim wrSomeWebservice as new webService1()

wrSomeWebservice.url ="http://blah.blah.blah.asmx"

The web service is encapsulated within the business logic. Although it would be possible to include a public static method to update the internal web service URL this seems an odd approach to take. Far simpler would be the ability to set the information in web.config. You can do it in a forms app so why not in a web site?

what you are saying is right. We should have these settings in a configurable file.

Web Service NameSpace URL Configurable in Web.Config
I am trying to allow the Web Service URL to be set via the Web.Config file.  I have read that Service.URL can change where the URL documented NameSpace can be configured.  However, from what I can tell, it seems that it is mostly called from the WebServices Client after creating an instance of the Web Service and then calling Service.URL from the client to change the URL upon consuming the Web Service.  Is there anyway to configure this in the Web Service on the server side?  And if so, where does Service.URL go and how do I setup the Web Service Namespace's in the ac...

How do I merge web services' app.config with web app's web.config? Help!!
I have a web application project that uses a separate class library containing web service references (service layer). I want to be able to configure the web reference URLs dynamically and I know you can set this up by setting the URL behavior to  'Dynamic', etc, etc. The problem is VS2005 puts the URLs in the project's app.config file. When the class library becomes a DLL component, I have no way of accessing the app.config file.Is there a way to make the web reference project to look for the URLs in the web.config instead of its app.config? Or is there a way to merge this app.config w...

Can "Add Web Reference" if web service deployed to new web site, Can't add ref if deployed to Virt Server under Default web site (Sharepoint)

Ajax error calling Web Service from Web Application Project vs Web Site

To ask the question another way: What needs to be done differently in a Web Service...

Web Deployment Project - Config Properties
I'm using a Web Deployment Project to compile my web site. In the Property Pages - Configuration Properties - Deployment section, there is an option to 'Enable Web.config file section replacement'. I have this working to replace certain sections of my web.config for each build config (release/staging/dev). I think this makes sense so other developers do not have to remember to change the web.config file. HOWEVER, this only seems to work when replacing parts of web.config; such as appSettings, connectionString, etc. This would require me to have separate config files for each section and bui...
