NET Dynamic Data controls, and contain types that let you define the design-time behavior of components and their user interfaces. Configuration namespaces contain types for handling configuration data, such as data in machine or application configuration files.
Child namespaces contain types that are used to configure an assembly, to write custom installers for components, and to support a pluggable model for adding functionality to, or removing functionality from, both client and server applications.

This is a public Working Group Note produced by the W3C Web Services Architecture Working Group, which is part of the W3C Web Services Activity.
This publication as a Working Group Note coincides with the end of the Working Group's charter period, and represents the culmination of the group's work.
Publication as a Working Group Note does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership.The top-level namespace and a number of the child namespaces together form the ADO. Other child namespaces contain classes used by the ADO.NET Entity Data Model (EDM) and by WCF Data Services.Discussion of this document is invited on the public mailing list [email protected](public archives).A list of remaining open issues is included in 4 Conclusions.
