ReliableSessionBindingElementImporter Class

Maps reliable session binding elements to and from representations of their corresponding policy assertions in metadata. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public sealed class ReliableSessionBindingElementImporter : IPolicyImportExtension

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) uses this class to import reliable session binding elements to binding policy assertions in metadata. This class takes the reliable session binding elements and writes custom policy assertions into the WSDL file when on the service. On the client, it looks for those assertions and inserts a corresponding binding element back into the client binding. Note that the presence of a reliable session in a binding is rendered as the reliable message assertion described in the WS-Reliable Messaging Policy specification.

For more information about exchanging policy assertions between bindings to WSDL information see the IPolicyImportExtension and IPolicyExportExtension interfaces:
