    Exposing Our Service’s WSDL

    Unlike previous ASMX services, the WSDL (web service definition language) for WCF services is not automatically generated.  The previous image even tells us that “Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled.”.  This is because we haven’t configured our service to expose any meta data about it. 


    Maybe the above link will help you.

    FYI -- Bing nd Google are your friends on finding the subject  'Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled'.
