You can use the DiscoveryDocument.References property to add a discoverable file type to a Web services document. While a discovery document is usually serialized as a file using a .disco extension, you can add multiple files to the References property, and those files can have other extensions, represented by implementations of DiscoverySearchPattern .

The DiscoverySearchPattern class and its concrete derived classes are employed by the DiscoveryRequestHandler class's ProcessRequest method, which handles an HTTP request for a discovery document. Normally, none of these classes need to be used directly by a developer.

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