The System.ServiceModel.Discovery namespace contains the classes required for the creation and use of discoverable services. These classes implement the WS-Discovery protocol for Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).
Used by services to send discovery announcement messages. Clients can use the discovery mechanism, specifically the corresponding AnnouncementService class to listen and act on the announcement messages. An announcement message contains information about the service such as its fully-qualified contract name, any scopes that the service is operating in as well as any custom metadata the service wants to send.
A standard endpoint that is used by services to send announcement messages.
Used to pass announcement event arguments.
A self-hosted implementation of the announcement service.
Allows you to discover available services.
A binding element that can be added to a WCF client application to take advantage of the Discovery client channel. The Discovery client channel allows a WCF client application to access a discoverable service without knowing the endpoint address in advance.
A standard discovery endpoint.
Provides a discovery endpoint.
Represents the AppSequence header defined in the WS-Discovery protocol.
A helper class that creates DiscoveryMessageSequence instances.
An operation context extension used to make various configuration items available to the discovery runtime.
An abstract base class used to implement a discovery proxy.
An abstract base class used to implement a discovery service.
An abstract WCF extension class for specifying a custom discovery service or for getting the published endpoints.
Specifies the version of the WS-Discovery protocol to use.
An endpoint that uses WS-Discovery to find the endpoint address dynamically at runtime.
Controls the content of the EndpointDiscoveryMetadata returned by a discovery endpoint.
Contains the metadata for a discoverable service.
Arguments for the FindCompleted event.
Represents the criteria to use when searching for services.
Arguments for the FindProgressChanged event.
Represents a find request sent by a client.
Represents the response from a find request.
Arguments for the ResolveCompleted event.
Represents the criteria to use when resolving a service.
Represents the response from a resolve request.
This class controls the discoverability of service endpoints.
A standard endpoint that is used by services to send announcement messages over a UDP binding. This endpoint inherits from AnnouncementEndpoint and similarly has a fixed contract and supports two discovery versions. In addition it has a fixed UDP binding and a default address value as specified in the WS-Discovery specifications (WS-Discovery April 2005 or WS-Discovery version 1.1). Therefore, in the simplest case you do not have to specify any of these values when you create an AnnouncementEndpoint and add it to a service.
A standard endpoint that is pre-configured for discovery operations over a UDP multicast binding. This endpoint inherits from DiscoveryEndpoint and similarly has a fixed contract and supports two WS-Discovery protocol versions. In addition, it has a fixed UDP binding and a default address as specified in the WS-Discovery specifications (WS-Discovery April 2005 or WS-Discovery V1.1).
Enables you to set UDP transport settings.
