System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices Namespace

The System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices namespace contains the classes that are used by the Soapsuds.exe command-line tool and the user code to convert metadata to and from XML schema for the remoting infrastructure. Some of the most important classes of this namespace are the System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices.SdlChannelSink class and the System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices.MetaData class.


The System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices.SdlChannelSink class is used by the remoting infrastructure to generate Web Services Description Language (WSDL) on the server side.

The System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices.MetaData class provides the functionality of the Soapsuds.exe command-line tool, and can be used programmatically to achieve the same outcome. The methods of the System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices.MetaData class can be used to create XML schemas that describe services that are exposed in source code, and to create C# code from XML schema.
