Web Services 2.0 configuration API

From the Beta 1 November CTP onwards there’s an all new way to read the web services configuration for ASP.NET 2.0. You can also manipulate it, but be aware that overwriting/updating the web.config will almost always cause a recycling/restart of your webapp.

using System.Configuration;
using System.Web.Configuration;
using System.Web.Services.Configuration;

Configuration config =
WebServicesSection section =
new WsiProfilesElement(System.Web.Services.WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1));
new ProtocolElement


Side note: I would recommend against using ConfigurationSaveMode.Full. It will save out the entire configuration, including the inherited machine.config. This means a LOT of config that you don’t really need. It’s fun to try it for once, though.
