To instantiate the context class, you must pass the class constructor an object that implements the IOrganizationService interface.
//connection is the connection string name in config file IOrganizationService _service = new OrganizationService("connection");
AdventureWorksCycleServiceContext context = new AdventureWorksCycleServiceContext(_service);
//For early bound types to work correctly, they have to be enabled on the proxy.
AdventureWorksCycleServiceContext context = new AdventureWorksCycleServiceContext(_serviceProxy);
