<serviceMetadata>
Specifies the publication of service metadata and associated information.

The metadata that the mex endpoint exposes describes the service, the various operations, parameters the opertions require and the return types. In other words, the metadata exposes the contract. With this information the client can create a proxy to interact with the service. Clients use the mex endpoint to access the metadata.
