The following example illustrates the use of the Import method.

// Import the service into the Code-DOM tree. This creates proxy code
// that uses the service.
ServiceDescriptionImportWarnings warning = importer.Import(nmspace,unit);

if (warning == 0)
    // Generate and print the proxy code in C#.
    CodeDomProvider provider = CodeDomProvider.CreateProvider("CSharp");
    provider.GenerateCodeFromCompileUnit(unit, Console.Out, new CodeGeneratorOptions() );
    // Print an error message.
