System.Web.Services.Protocols.XmlReturnReader and other classes in the System.Web.Services.Protocols namespace support the .NET Framework's implementations of Web services via the HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST operations. Web service writers and readers serialize and deserialize, respectively, between the parameters or return objects of Web methods and the HTTP request or response streams. Web service writers and readers use HTTP for transport but don't exchange messages using the SOAP standard. The System.Web.Services.Protocols.XmlReturnReader class implements the client-side reading of XML documents into Web method return values. The XML documents are encoded in the body of HTTP responses.

You typically will not need to use System.Web.Services.Protocols.XmlReturnReader directly. Instead, when the Wsdl.exe tool generates client proxy code according to the HTTP-GET or HTTP-POST implementations, it applies the System.Web.Services.Protocols.HttpMethodAttribute to each Web method and sets the attribute's HttpMethodAttribute.ReturnFormatter property to System.Web.Services.Protocols.XmlReturnReader.
