Serves as a base class for readers of incoming request parameters for Web services implemented using HTTP but without SOAP.
Assembly: System.Web.Services (in System.Web.Services.dll)
and other classes in the System.Web.Services.Protocols namespace support the .NET Framework's implementations of Web services via the HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST operations. Web service writers and readers serialize and deserialize, respectively, between the parameters or return objects of Web methods and the HTTP request or response streams. Web service writers and readers use HTTP for transport but don't exchange messages using the SOAP standard. The class provides, among other methods, a common Read method for all service-side readers of collections of name/value pairs into Web method parameters. The name/value pairs have been parsed from an incoming HTTP request.
You typically will not need to use or its descendant classes directly. The appropriate types are used according to settings in an ASP.NET configuration file (Web.config).
