comment Make webservice client compatible to newer servers
In meantime... I tried SoapExtension and it works fine. The time for parsing the response stream is less than 15 ms. This is acceptable for a client.

Replacing enum by string is the best way. But server is developed by another team. I don't know if we can persuade them. :-)

Of course we show a warning about incompatibility. The compatibility feature is only a workaround.

The client shows 1000 "old" informations. If customer just wants to see one of them he could use old client. Another scenario where we wish the compatibility is for developers while development. For every mini feature on server all developers have to upgrade the client. And if client production failed (or client proxy is not yet updated by client team) they cannot connect to new server.

@JohnSaunders Our customers does not have a DevStudio. They have a client installation. And if they want to update the client they would need to deinstall the old client version and install the newest client version. If customer have 10 old server and 1 new server and if he just want to look at one little information on new server we have 2 options: Either he must deinstall/install or we have compatibility to new servers.

@JohnSaunders I know that ASMX is a legacy tech. But we had developed this client when ASMX was up-to-date. And now we are afraid of moving it to WCF because of the effort. The client has some 100,000 lines of code.
