In brief, the client project should have the Data Contract or Service Contract declarations. Basically, you can have the shared assembly referenced by both client and server parts and than deploy both parts...

Solution 1

If the Service has HttpGet enabled and it is has a Meta Data behavior you can use the ServiceModel Metadata Utility Tool (Svcutil.exe)to create a client proxy.[^]

This is the "How to" step for WCF in creating a client that does so. If the 2 constraints mentioned are not possible then you will need a reference library that exposes the interface contract.
