The ModelMetadataProviders class sets this class as the default metadata provider for the MVC framework. You typically do not have to use this class directly. If you develop a custom attribute-based metadata provider, you can use this implementation as a guide.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
