This sample demonstrates how to create a
ByteStreamHttpBinding, a Binding that demonstrates the functionality of the byte stream encoder.
This sample demonstrates how to create a standard Binding using the standard binding elements ByteStreamMessageEncodingBindingElement and HttpTransportBindingElement. This sample shows how to use the byte stream encoder to upload and download an image. The byte stream encoder feature only supports the HTTP transport and it does not support features such as reliable messaging or security. The only MessageVersion supported is None.
