<mexHttpBinding>
   <binding 
       closeTimeout="TimeSpan" 
       name="string" 
       openTimeout="TimeSpan" 
       receiveTimeout="TimeSpan"
       sendTimeout="TimeSpan">
   </binding>
</mexHttpBinding>

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

Attribute Description

closeTimeout

A TimeSpan value that specifies the interval of time provided for a close operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to Zero. The default is 00:01:00.

name

A string that contains the configuration name of the binding. This value should be unique because it is used as an identification for the binding. Each binding has a name and namespace attribute that together uniquely identify it in the metadata of the service. In addition, this name is unique among bindings of the same type.

openTimeout

A TimeSpan value that specifies the interval of time provided for an open operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to Zero. The default is 00:01:00.

receiveTimeout

A TimeSpan value that specifies the interval of time provided for a receive operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to Zero. The default is 00:10:00.

sendTimeout

A TimeSpan value that specifies the interval of time provided for a send operation to complete. This value should be greater than or equal to Zero. The default is 00:01:00.

Child Elements

None.

Parent Elements

Element Description

<bindings>

This element holds a collection of standard and custom bindings. Each entry is identified by its unique name. Services use bindings by linking them using the name.

This binding is essentially a WSHttpBinding binding with security disabled. It supports most metadata requests.
