XML Web Services Directives

This topic is specific to a legacy technology. XML Web services and XML Web service clients should now be created using Windows Communication Foundation .

The topics in this section describe the markup syntax that you can use within an XML Web service built using ASP.NET. XML Web services created using ASP.NET are text files that have an .asmx file name extension.

If an XML Web services sample has been developed using Visual Studio, a tilde ('~') can appear in a directive attribute example code. For information about this usage, see ASP.NET Web Site Paths
