Web Services on Devices
The Microsoft Web Services on Devices API (WSDAPI) supports the implementation of client-controlled devices and services, and device hosts conforming to the Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS). WSDAPI uses WS-Discovery for device discovery.
WSDAPI may be used for the development of both client and service implementations.
Web Services on Devices allows a client to discover and access a remote device and its associated services across a network. It supports device discovery, description, control, and eventing. Developers can create WSDAPI client proxies and corresponding stubs for device hosts.
The Web Services on Devices documentation is intended for C/C++ programmers and device vendors creating DPWS-compliant products.
Client applications that use WSDAPI are supported starting with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
