MessageEncodingBindingElementImporter Class

Converts WSDL-based policies and contracts about message encoding into descriptions of the binding elements that can implement these policies for the service.


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

public class MessageEncodingBindingElementImporter : IWsdlImportExtension, 

The MessageEncodingBindingElementImporter type exposes the following members.

Public methodMessageEncodingBindingElementImporterInitializes a new instance of the MessageEncodingBindingElementImporter class.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIPolicyImportExtension.ImportPolicyDefines a method that can import custom policy assertions for message encoding and that adds the binding elements that implement the policy.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIWsdlImportExtension.BeforeImportCalled prior to importing the metadata documents associated with the encoding.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIWsdlImportExtension.ImportContractCalled when importing a contract.
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIWsdlImportExtension.ImportEndpointMaps the custom WSDL extensions for encoding messages to the service description.

Override this class to extend the standard mapping between WSDL and a message encoding binding element. Then attach your custom object to a WsdlImporter either programmatically or by using an application configuration file. You can also attach your custom object to the internal WsdlImporter used by the Service Model Metadata Utility Tool (Svcutil.exe) using an application configuration file.

Use the BeforeImport(ServiceDescriptionCollection, XmlSchemaSet, ICollection<XmlElement>) method to directly modify the metadata that is then imported into message encoding binding elements.
