    Switching from Staging to Production

    My general question is, what's the easiest way to dynamically change my development environment from staging to production. I know the high-level answer is, "just repoint to another wsdl", but...

    I used asp.NET's discovery process to originally access the staging wsdl. From this, as well as the SDK, I now have code that has embedded within it staging references (i.e. public CommonServiceSoap() {
    this.Url = "http://findv3.staging.mappoint.net/Find-30/Common.asmx";
    } )

    Following the SDN, I wrote code that has the following initialization of the various services:
    private MapPointService.RenderServiceSoap renderService;
    private MapPointService.FindServiceSoap findService;
    private MapPointService.RouteServiceSoap routeService;
    private MapPointService.CommonServiceSoap commonService;

    If I look at the URLs, while stepping through the code, these naturally reference the hard-coded staging URLs. Is there a single place (i.e. within MapPointService) that I can just say, re-discover from the production (service) wsdl? Otherwise, is it safe to change each of the Urls dynamically to the production versions. For example:

    renderService.Url = "http://findv3.service.mappoint.net/Find-30/Common.asmx";

    Is this even a valid URL?

    Settings in web.config file:

    Method in Global file:

    Public Sub AuthenticateServices()

    Dim myCredentials As New NetworkCredential(ConfigurationSettings.AppSetting s("MPUser"), ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("MPPassword"))

    ' Render service
    RService = New RenderServiceSoap
    RService.Credentials = myCredentials
    RService.PreAuthenticate = True

    ' Find service
    FService = New FindServiceSoap
    FService.Credentials = myCredentials
    FService.PreAuthenticate = True

    ' Route service
    RtService = New RouteServiceSoap
    RtService.Credentials = myCredentials
    RtService.PreAuthenticate = True

    ' Common service
    CService = New CommonServiceSoap
    CService.Credentials = myCredentials
    CService.PreAuthenticate = True

    ' Set the endpoints to staging or production
    If ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("IsProduction") = "T" Then
    RService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("RServiceProduction")
    FService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("FServiceProduction")
    RtService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("RtServiceProduction")
    CService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("CServiceProduction")
    RService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("RServiceStaging")
    FService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("FServiceStaging")
    RtService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("RtServiceStaging")
    CService.Url = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("CServiceStaging")
    End If

    Return myServices

    Catch ex As Exception

    End Try

    End Sub

    All you have to do is change the IsProduction value in the config file to T or F, doesn't cause a recompile. Staging and production are exactly the same just different end points which are specified by the .URL property.
