Title: WS-MetadataExchange  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Devices Profile for Web Services, Information Card, Web service, Windows CardSpace, Web service specifications
Collection: Web Service Specifications
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


WS-MetaDataExchange is a web services protocol specification, published by BEA Systems, IBM, Microsoft, and SAP. WS-MetaDataExchange is part of the WS-Federation roadmap; and is designed to work in conjunction with WS-Addressing, WSDL and WS-Policy to allow retrieval of metadata about a Web Services endpoint.[1]

It uses a SOAP message to request metadata, and so goes beyond the basic technique of appending "?wsdl" to a service name's URL
