Represents a complete, in-memory description of the service, including all the endpoints for the service and specifications for their respective addresses, bindings, contracts and behaviors.

The information contained in the is used by the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) system to building the run-time components for the service.
Use this method when adding custom behaviors to extend ServiceHost. Programmatically, you must Add(T) the custom service behavior to the Behaviors prior to when you call the Open method on the ServiceHost object.
The GetService(Object) and GetService(Type) methods are available to reflect on behaviors using the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) programming model when replacing ServiceHostBase with you own hosting mechanism.
Export metadata about a service endpoint by passing ServiceEndpoint as a parameter to ExportEndpoint(ServiceEndpoint). After calling this method, or one of the other export methods provided by WsdlExporter, use the GeneratedWsdlDocuments property to return the collection of ServiceDescription objects.
