Used within the .NET Framework to generate internal mappings to .NET Framework types for SOAP-encoded message parts in a WSDL document.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public class SoapSchemaImporter : SchemaImporter

The SoapSchemaImporter class is used by the Web Services Description Language Tool (Wsdl.exe), and the ServiceDescriptionImporter class, while generating client proxy classes or abstract server classes from a Web Services Description Language (WSDL) document. Instead of using this class directly, use Wsdl.exe.

The SoapSchemaImporter class has methods to generate internal mappings to .NET Framework types for part elements defined in a WSDL document. The class is used only when a WSDL document specifies SOAP encoding, as described in Section 5 of the SOAP 1.1 specification.


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