WCFBuildProvider Class

WCFBuildProvider Class

Generates proxy class code for Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services


Namespace:  System.Web.Compilation
Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

public class WCFBuildProvider : BuildProvider

The WCFBuildProvider type exposes the following members.

Public methodWCFBuildProviderInitializes a new instance of the WCFBuildProvider class.

Public propertyCodeCompilerTypeRepresents the compiler type used by a build provider to generate source code for a custom file type. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected propertyReferencedAssembliesRepresents the assemblies to compile with the source generated by the build provider. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected propertyVirtualPathRepresents the file to be built by this build provider implementation. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public propertyVirtualPathDependenciesRepresents a collection of virtual paths that must be built before the build provider generates code. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)

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 methodGenerateCodeGenerates the service proxy class source code and adds it to the specified assembly builder. (Overrides BuildProvider.GenerateCode(AssemblyBuilder).)
Protected methodGetCodeCompileUnitRepresents the container for the generated CodeDOM graph. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetCustomStringInfrastructure. Generates a string to be persisted in the compiled assembly. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodGetDefaultCompilerTypeReturns the compiler settings for the default language in the application. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodGetDefaultCompilerTypeForLanguageReturns the compiler settings for the build provider based on the specified language. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetGeneratedTypeReturns a type generated by the build provider from the virtual path. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetResultFlagsReturns a value indicating actions required when a virtual path is built. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOpenReader()Opens a text reader for reading from the virtual path of the current build provider object. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodOpenReader(String)Opens a text reader for reading from a specified virtual path. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodOpenStream()Opens a stream for reading the virtual path of the current build provider object. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodOpenStream(String)Opens a stream for reading from a specified virtual path. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodProcessCompileErrorsWhen overridden in a derived class, enables you to review compiler error messages so that you can modify them to provide more information. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The WCFBuildProvider uses mapping files (.svcmap) at the root level of the Web application that contains WCF service references. The mapping files specify the services for which proxy class source code must be generated. The generated proxy class is then compiled with the other resources during the Web application compilation phase.

The inherited VirtualPath property is internally defined and points to the Web application root directory where the .svcmap files reside.
