See more: XML WCF XSLT SOAP WebService
I am working on a WSDL published by standards organization (IHE). It is very complex with over 30 XSDs included in it for data types.

When I try to use svcutil to generate client proxy, I am getting the following error

Warning: The optional WSDL extension element 'body' from namespace '' w
as not handled.
XPath: //wsdl:definitions[@targetNamespace='urn:ihe:iti:pixv3:2007']/wsdl:binding[@name='PIXManager_Binding_So

If required, I can send in the wsdl and associated files.

I think the problem is that the schema that is used by the wsdl does not conform to the data contract serializer's schema reference.

You can check data contract scheme reference for information on what exactly is supported.

You are correct. However, what I want to know is how to bypass this limitation and create the webservice. Using wsdl.exe fails too. So does xmlSerializer option in svcutil.
