System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices Namespace

Contains the classes that are used by the Soapsuds Tool (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 SdlChannelSink class and the MetaData class.



Provides methods that allow you to work with XML schema.


Provides the implementation for a server channel sink that generates Web Services Description Language (WSDL) dynamically on the server.


Provides the implementation for the server channel sink provider that creates SdlChannelSink instances.


Associates a well-known object type that is passed to the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) generator with a remote endpoint that can process messages that are sent to a method on the type.


The exception that is thrown if an error occurs during the generation of Web Services Description Language (WSDL).


The exception that is thrown if an error occurs during parsing of the Web Services Description Language (WSDL).



Specifies the schema type that is used to describe services that are provided by an application.


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

The MetaData class provides the functionality of the Soapsuds Tool (Soapsuds.exe) command-line tool, and can be used programmatically to achieve the same outcome. The methods of the 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.
