ServiceContractAttribute.Namespace ServiceContractAttribute.Namespace ServiceContractAttribute.Namespace ServiceContractAttribute.Namespace Property

Definition

Gets or sets the namespace of the <portType> element in Web Services Description Language (WSDL).

public:
 property System::String ^ Namespace { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
public string Namespace { get; set; }
member this.Namespace : string with get, set
Public Property Namespace As String
Property Value

The WSDL namespace of the <portType> element. The default value is "http://tempuri.org".

Examples

The following code example shows how to use the Name and Namespace properties of the ServiceContractAttribute to set the corresponding values in WSDL.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.Text;

namespace Microsoft.WCF.Documentation
{
  [ServiceContract(
    Name="HelloWorld",
    Namespace="http://Microsoft.WCF.Documentation"
  )]
  public interface ISampleService{
    [OperationContract]
    string SampleMethod(string msg);
  }

  class SampleService : ISampleService
  {
  #region ISampleService Members

  public string  SampleMethod(string msg)
  {
 	  return "The service greets you: " + msg;
  }

  #endregion
  }
}


Imports System
Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.ServiceModel
Imports System.Text

Namespace Microsoft.WCF.Documentation
  <ServiceContract(Name:="HelloWorld", Namespace:="http://Microsoft.WCF.Documentation")> _
  Public Interface ISampleService
	<OperationContract> _
	Function SampleMethod(ByVal msg As String) As String
  End Interface

  Friend Class SampleService
	  Implements ISampleService
  #Region "ISampleService Members"

  Public Function SampleMethod(ByVal msg As String) As String Implements ISampleService.SampleMethod
	   Return "The service greets you: " & msg
  End Function

  #End Region
  End Class
End Namespace

The following code example shows an Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) client for the preceding service that imported WSDL using the ServiceModel Metadata Utility Tool (Svcutil.exe). This client uses a HelloWorldClient client rather than a SampleServiceClient client (as is the case with the sample in the Example section of ServiceContractAttribute).

using System;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Channels;
 
public class Client
{
  public static void Main()
  {
    // Picks up configuration from the config file.
    HelloWorldClient wcfClient = new HelloWorldClient();
    try
    {
      // Making calls.
      Console.WriteLine("Enter the greeting to send: ");
      string greeting = Console.ReadLine();
      Console.WriteLine("The service responded: " + wcfClient.SampleMethod(greeting));

      // Done with service. 
      wcfClient.Close();
      Console.WriteLine("Done!");
    }
    catch (TimeoutException timeProblem)
    {
      Console.WriteLine("The service operation timed out. " + timeProblem.Message);
      wcfClient.Abort();
    }
    catch (CommunicationException commProblem)
    {
      Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " + commProblem.Message);
      wcfClient.Abort();
    }
    finally
    {
      Console.WriteLine("Press ENTER to exit:");
      Console.ReadLine();
    }
  }
}


Imports System
Imports System.ServiceModel
Imports System.ServiceModel.Channels

Public Class Client
  Public Shared Sub Main()
	' Picks up configuration from the config file.
	Dim wcfClient As New HelloWorldClient()
	Try
	  ' Making calls.
	  Console.WriteLine("Enter the greeting to send: ")
            Dim greeting = Console.ReadLine()
	  Console.WriteLine("The service responded: " & wcfClient.SampleMethod(greeting))

	  ' Done with service. 
	  wcfClient.Close()
	  Console.WriteLine("Done!")
	Catch timeProblem As TimeoutException
	  Console.WriteLine("The service operation timed out. " & timeProblem.Message)
	  wcfClient.Abort()
	Catch commProblem As CommunicationException
	  Console.WriteLine("There was a communication problem. " & commProblem.Message)
	  wcfClient.Abort()
	Finally
	  Console.WriteLine("Press ENTER to exit:")
	  Console.ReadLine()
	End Try
  End Sub
End Class
