System.Web.Services.Description Namespace

The System.Web.Services.Description namespace consists of the classes that enable you to publicly describe an XML Web service by using the Web Services Description Language (WSDL). Each class in this namespace corresponds to a specific element in the WSDL specification, and the class hierarchy corresponds to the XML structure of a valid WSDL document. For more information about WSDL, see the specification at the W3C Web site (http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl/).
