To initialize an XmlSerializer object.
By the XML Schema Definition tool (Xsd.exe) while the tool generates XML schemas from types in a run-time assembly file.
By the Web Services Description Language tool (Wsdl.exe) while the tool generates client proxy classes or abstract server classes from a WSDL document.
The class is used for Web services when a service or client specifies:
Literal use, which indicates that the contents of SOAP message parameters and return values (or request and response documents) are literally specified with XML schema definitions.
Non-SOAP implementations of Web services using the HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST operations.
