T4 Templates and WCF Client generation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I am currently in a project there we are consuming some wcf services, but we are not happy with the generation result of the service proxy.

    We are getting ugly names like service.NameSpace_Are_In_The_Method_NameBeginSomeMethod.....

    And we want the possibility to do some other changes.

    Can we somehow change the template that are generating these service client proxies??

    I have read something about T4 but everything has been about the objects, which we don't have any problems with cause we are reusing them.

  • Why not?
    T4 template are in general very easy to edit and extensible, if you don't like the naming you can simply go change it.

    This is a sample on how to write a T4 template to consume WCF service
