Console.WriteLine("URI of the metadata documents retreived:");
MetadataExchangeClient metaTransfer 
  = new MetadataExchangeClient(httpGetMetaAddress.Uri, MetadataExchangeClientMode.HttpGet);
metaTransfer.ResolveMetadataReferences = true;
MetadataSet otherDocs = metaTransfer.GetMetadata();
foreach (MetadataSection doc in otherDocs.MetadataSections)
  Console.WriteLine(doc.Dialect + " : " + doc.Identifier);
