metadata exchange endpoint?

Using the preview 6 I’ve created a wcf web api for a simple asp.net MVC ef cf project to exercise my learning. It is based on the wcf.codeplex.com starter and going further tutorials. It works. Cool stuff. Love the intellisense in the test client.

I would like to use this api I’ve created in a wpf application. I attempted to add a service reference in the wpf application.  However my wcf web Api doesn’t expose  a mex metadata endpoint. I further experimented a bit with Silverlight OData but I apparently don’t have the metadata exposed for that either.

Search of this forum and the chm files included with the distribution failed me. Can someone point me in a direction for further reading to illuminate this subject? And/or perhaps a code sample based on the starter project that would implement the metadata exchange endpoint?

You don't expose metadata in REST services, see this similar discussion for more info on the topic: http://wcf.codeplex.com/discussions/284262
