You can add a Web service to an existing Web project in Visual Studio.

To add a new Web service to an existing Web project

  1. In Solution Explorer, select the project to which you want to add a Web service.

  2. On the Web Site menu, click Add New Item. Alternatively, right-click the project name and point to Add New Item.

    The Add New Item dialog appears.

  3. Select Web Service, choose a name for your web service, and choose Add to add the Web service to your project.

    Visual Studio automatically creates the necessary files and references to support a Web service. When completed, the IDE displays the .asmx file in Design view. For more information, see ASP.NET XML Web Service Basics.
