On a CAF app, how to manage webservice host address/port number for the deployment to different environments (such as QA and PD)?
Elaborating a bit more: in a CAF app, when you create a call to a web service, the Designer hardcodes the webservice’s hostname and portnumber. However, it is very common for having different environments during the software life cyle: a DEV, a QA and a PD. And in these environments, it is not unusual that the webservices will reside in other servers, thus getting different names.
Having this said, how to manage these configurations?
PS.: during the “webservice call” set up, I noticed a configuration dialog where it asks whether using the hostname or “endpoint”. Could this be a way to manage these configuration? And I could not find any documentation explaining how to configure or use these “endpoints”. (SAG guys: this is a topic you should explain in the documentation!)
