DiscoveryReference Class

The base class for discoverable references using XML Web services discovery.

Namespace: System.Web.Services.Discovery
Assembly: System.Web.Services (in system.web.services.dll)
public abstract class DiscoveryReference
public abstract class DiscoveryReference
public abstract class DiscoveryReference
Not applicable.

ContractReference, SchemaReference, and DiscoveryDocumentReference all inherit from DiscoveryReference, and represent the three types of documents discoverable through XML Web services discovery: Service Descriptions, XML Schema Definition (XSD) schemas, and discovery documents, respectively.
