NAME
New-WebServiceProxy

SYNOPSIS
Creates a Web service proxy object that lets you use and manage the Web service in Windows PowerShell.

SYNTAX
New-WebServiceProxy [-URI] [[-Class] ] [[-Namespace] ] []

New-WebServiceProxy [-URI] [[-Class] ] [[-Namespace] ] [-Credential ] [ arameters>]

New-WebServiceProxy [-URI] [[-Class] ] [[-Namespace] ] [-UseDefaultCredential] [ ters>]


DESCRIPTION
The New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet lets you use a Web service in Windows PowerShell. The cmdlet connects to a Web servi
ce and creates a Web service proxy object in Windows PowerShell. You can use the proxy object to manage the Web ser
vice.

A Web service is an XML-based program that exchanges data over a network, particularly over the Internet. The Micro
soft .NET Framework provides Web service proxy objects that represent the Web service as a .NET Framework object.


PARAMETERS
-Class
Specifies a name for the proxy class that the cmdlet creates for the Web service. The value of this parameter i
s used with the Namespace parameter to provide a fully qualified name for the class. The default value is gener
ated from the URI.

Required? false
Position? 2
Default value Generated from the URI
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Credential
Specifies a user account that has permission to perform this action. The default is the current user. This is a
n alternative to using the UseDefaultCredential parameter.

Type a user name, such as "User01" or "Domain01\User01". Or, enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated
by the Get-Credential cmdlet. If you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-Namespace
Specifies a namespace for the new class.

The value of this parameter is used with the value of the Class parameter to generate a fully qualified name fo
r the class. The default value is Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.NewWebserviceProxy.AutogeneratedTypes plus a t
ype that is generated from the URI.

You can set the value of the Namespace parameter so that you can access multiple Web services with the same nam
e.

Required? false
Position? 3
Default value Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.NewWebserviceProxy.AutogeneratedTypes
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-URI
Specifies the URI of the Web service. Enter a URI or the path and file name of a file that contains a service d
escription.

The URI must refer to an .asmx page or to a page that returns a service description. To return a service descri
ption of a Web service that was created by using ASP.NET, append "?WSDL" to the URL of the Web service (for exa
mple, http://www.contoso.com/MyWebService.asmx?WSDL).

Required? true
Position? 1
Default value
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false

-UseDefaultCredential []
Sets the UseDefaultCredential parameter in the resulting proxy object to True. This is an alternative to using
the Credential parameter.

Required? false
Position? named
Default value False
Accept pipeline input? false
Accept wildcard characters? false


This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,
ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,
OutBuffer and OutVariable. For more information, type,
"get-help about_commonparameters".

INPUTS
None
This cmdlet does not take input from the pipeline.


OUTPUTS
A Web service proxy object
The namespace and class of the object are determined by the parameters of the command. The default is generated
from the input Uniform Resource Identifier (URI).


NOTES


New-WebServiceProxy uses the System.Net.WebClient class to load the specified Web service.


-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>$zip = New-WebServiceProxy -uri http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL


Description
-----------
This command uses the New-WebServiceProxy command to create a .NET Framework proxy of the US Zip Web service in Win
dows PowerShell.





-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>$URI = "http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx?WSDL"

C:\PS> $zip = New-WebServiceProxy -uri $URI -namespace WebServiceProxy -class ZipClass


Description
-----------
This command uses the New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet to create a .NET Framework proxy of the US Zip Web service.

The first command stores the URI of the Web service in the $URI variable.

The second command creates the Web service proxy. The command uses the URI parameter to specify the URI and the Nam
espace and Class parameters to specify the namespace and class of the object.





-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

C:\PS>$zip | get-member -type method

TypeName: WebServiceProxy.USZip

Name MemberType Definition
---- ---------- ----------
Abort Method System.Void Abort(
BeginGetInfoByAreaCode Method System.IAsyncResul
BeginGetInfoByCity Method System.IAsyncResul
BeginGetInfoByState Method System.IAsyncResul
BeginGetInfoByZIP Method System.IAsyncResul

EndGetInfoByAreaCode Method System.Xml.XmlNode

GetInfoByAreaCode Method System.Xml.XmlNode

GetInfoByZIP Method System.Xml.XmlNode
GetLifetimeService Method System.Object GetL
GetType Method System.Type GetTyp
InitializeLifetimeService Method System.Object Init
ToString Method System.String ToSt


Description
-----------
This command uses the Get-Member cmdlet to display the methods of the Web service proxy object in the $zip variable
. We will use these methods in the following example.

Notice that the TypeName of the proxy object, WebServiceProxy, reflects the namespace and class names that were spe
cified in the previous example.





-------------------------- EXAMPLE 4 --------------------------

C:\PS>$zip.getinfobyzip(20500).table

CITY : Washington
STATE : DC
ZIP : 20500
AREA_CODE : 202
TIME_ZONE : E


Description
-----------
This command uses the Web service proxy stored in the Zip variable. The command uses the GetInfoByZip method of the
proxy and its Table property.
