Adding a Web reference

Adding a Web reference essentially generates the client interface.
To generate a client interface:

2. Rename the Web reference you added to the project appropriately (for example, from servicehost to OrderService). Select the Show All Files toolbar button (or choose Project > Show All Files) to locate the Web reference file, Reference.vb under the renamed Web reference.
