ServiceMetadataBehavior.HttpGetUrl Property

Gets or sets the location of metadata publication for HTTP/GET requests.

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

[TypeConverterAttribute(typeof(UriTypeConverter))]
public Uri HttpGetUrl { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Uri
The absolute or relative location of the metadata.

If the value of HttpGetUrl is relative, the address at which the metadata is published is the base address and the service address plus a ?wsdl querystring.

If the value of HttpGetUrl is absolute the address at which the metadata is published is this value plus a ?wsdl querystring.

For example, if the service address is http://localhost:8080/CalculatorService and the HttpGetUrl is an empty string, the HTTP/GET metadata address is http://localhost:8080/CalculatorService?wsdl.

The following code example demonstrates the use of ServiceMetadataBehavior in a configuration file to enable metadata support for HTTP/GET and WS-Transfer/GET requests.
