Remarks

This element may be used to provide the code generator with additional information about namespaces that it encounters in WSDL and XSD files or to introduce new namespaces.

Namespaces implied by type reflection or specified in WSDL and XSD files are parsed automatically by the code generator and do not have to be explicitly defined in the script. In some cases, this element can be used to add additional properties or names to a namespace that is referenced by type reflection or WSDL/XSD. The code generator does not regard this as a conflict.

The following XML shows a nameSpace element (with children omitted for brevity).

<nameSpace uri="https://www.example.com/namespace">
  ...
</nameSpace>
