public abstract class SoapExtensionReflector

The SoapExtensionReflector type exposes the following members.

Protected methodSoapExtensionReflectorInitializes an instance of the SoapExtensionReflector class

Public propertyReflectionContextGets or sets the instance of a class derived from the abstract ProtocolReflector class that invokes the ReflectMethod method.

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 methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReflectDescriptionGenerates service-specific description information that gets placed in a ServiceDescription object corresponding to a binding.
Public methodReflectMethodAbstract method that a derived class must implement to add SOAP extension information to a ServiceDescription object on a per-method basis.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The abstract SoapExtensionReflector class exposes an abstract method, ReflectMethod. This abstract method allows a derived class to add descriptions of SOAP extensions when reflecting a Web method into objects that are placed in a ServiceDescription object. The method itself is not an input. The descriptions get added for all Web methods belonging to a specified binding that produces a ServiceDescription.

You can use a ServiceDescriptionto generate a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) document via the Write method. The ServiceDescriptionImporter class and related classes can also use a ServiceDescription to generate client proxy code or abstract server code.

Use a class derived from the SoapExtensionReflector class in conjunction with a class derived from the abstract SoapExtension class to extend run-time processing of SOAP messages on the client or service.

You can specify SoapExtensionReflectorin a configuration file via the <soapExtensionReflectorTypes> element and its child add element. You can also apply the configuration to an ASP.NET Web application that publishes a Web service.
