BinaryMessageEncodingElement Class

Represents a message encoder that encodes Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) messages in binary on the wire. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Configuration
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
public ref class BinaryMessageEncodingElement sealed : public BindingElementExtensionElement

The BinaryMessageEncodingElement type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription

Encoding is the process of transforming a set of Unicode characters into a sequence of bytes.

The BinaryMessageEncodingElement class represents the configuration section that specifies the character encoding and message versioning used for binary-based XML messages. The binary message encoder encodes WCF messages in binary on the wire. While this encoding results in very fast transmission of messages, interoperability based on the WS-* standards is lost.

The MtomMessageEncodingElement class represents the configuration section that specifies the character encoding and message versioning used for a message using a Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM) encoding. MTOM is an efficient technology for transmitting binary data in WCF messages. The MTOM encoder attempts to balance between efficiency and interoperability. The MTOM encoding transmits most XML in textual form, but optimizes large blocks of binary data by transmitting them as-is, without conversion to text.

The TextMessageEncodingElement class represents a configuration section that specifies a text encoder used to create text-based messages on the wire. Messages produced by this encoder are suitable for WS-* based interoperability. Web service or Web service client can generally understand textual XML. However, transmitting large blocks of binary data as text is the least efficient method for encoding XML messages.
