Abstract

A mechanism is disclosed to provide a means of allowing a client of a web service to acquire the necessary executable code to implement a defined WSDL binding at runtime, using WSDL extensibility elements. The mechanism defines a means of defining the location of the code that implements the binding in WSDL, such that a web service client may download this code and execute it to parse the rest of the WSDL binding section to configure the connection behaviour of the client.
