XML comments on fault DataContracts

Jul 25, 2013 at 11:48 PM
Hi all,
I'm using WCFExtrasPlus to embed XML comments from the source code into the WSDL exported by my service. I'm then using Adivo TechWriter to import those comments and generate a nice SOAP service reference document.

This works great for most things, but I'm not seeing the comments on DataMembers on DataContracts that are used for faults coming through.

For normal DataContracts, the documentation for a DataMember appears in the WSDL as a xs:documentation element. For fault DataContracts, the documentation appears in a d1p1:Text element. I guess that this is why TechWriter isn't picking it up. Why is it different for fault DataContracts? Is there any way to get WCFExtrasPlus to export the documentation consistently?

Thanks :)
