  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberFilenameFromUrlReturns a file name based on the passed URL.
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadDocumentReads the passed Stream and returns an instance of the class representing the type of referenced document.
Public methodResolve()Downloads the referenced document at Url to resolve whether the referenced document is valid.
Protected methodResolve(String, Stream)Resolves whether the referenced document is valid.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodWriteDocumentWhen overridden in a derived class, writes the document to a Stream.

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.
