The System.Runtime.Remoting.MetadataServices namespace contains the classes 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 SdlChannelSink and the MetaData class.
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.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 describing services exposed in source code, and to create C# code from XML schema.
