Hi all,
i'm just learning the basics of WCF and i've managed to create a basic service.  But what i'd like to do is store some settings in an XSD file and the client would be able to query those server settings.
can assistance on this?i wish to be able to query servername and current servertime.
from my basic knowledge, i assume i need something like...(see code)

but how do i go about storing that data in an xml file on the WCF host side?

thanks in advance

    public class DataContract1
        string ServerAlias;
        datetime ServerTime;
        public string ServerAlias
            get { return ServerAlias; }
            set { ServerAlias= value; }
        public datetime ServerTime
            get { return ServerTime; }
            set { ServerTime = value; }

You can write an XML file on setup, or on server init and you can read the nodes that you store.

For the server time you can also get the machine date/time on which is installed by returning on the ServerTime property DateTime.Now;

Hope this helps!
