Custom MembershipProvider calling web service


Vincent Finn


I have written a MembershipProvider that calls a WCF webservice.

It works fine but I am wondering about the creation of the
ServiceClient objects.

The examples I have seen of calling a WCF webservice all follow this

MyServiceClient client = new MyServiceClient();

That is what I am doing but I was wondering about the expense of
creating all the MyServiceClient objects.

The Provider is not recreated for every function call so i can create
the MyServiceClient instance in the constructor and use it.

This seems the more obvious way of doing things to me but I wanted to
check if there are object lifetime issues with it or anything other
reason to create everytime?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks, Vincent
