Support for parameterless operation contracts

See original GitHub issue

Hi, for some of our message contracts we need to to accept soap messages without a body. As far as i can see is currently not supported.

For example, we need to accept echo response pings via this message:

POST https://localhost:5001/service.svc HTTP/1.1
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Content-Type: text/xml;charset=UTF-8
SOAPAction: "EchoResponse"
Content-Length: 139
Host: localhost:5001
Connection: Keep-Alive
User-Agent: Apache-HttpClient/4.5.5 (Java/12.0.1)

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="">

Unfortunately this results in the following exceptions:

Exception when generating the wsdl on service startup:

  Message=Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. 
   at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowArgumentOutOfRange_IndexException()
   at System.Collections.Generic.List`1.get_Item(Int32 index)
   at SoapCore.Meta.MetaBodyWriter.GetMessageContractBodyType(Type type)
   at SoapCore.Meta.MetaBodyWriter.WriteParameters(XmlDictionaryWriter writer, SoapMethodParameterInfo[] parameterInfos, Boolean isMessageContract)
   at SoapCore.Meta.MetaBodyWriter.AddTypes(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at SoapCore.Meta.MetaBodyWriter.OnWriteBodyContents(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.BodyWriter.WriteBodyContents(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.BodyWriterMessage.OnWriteBodyContents(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message.WriteBodyContents(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at SoapCore.Meta.MetaMessage.OnWriteBodyContents(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message.OnWriteMessage(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message.WriteMessage(XmlDictionaryWriter writer)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message.WriteMessage(XmlWriter writer)
   at SoapCore.MessageEncoder.SoapMessageEncoder.WriteXmlCore(Message message, XmlWriter xmlWriter)
   at SoapCore.MessageEncoder.SoapMessageEncoder.<WriteMessageAsync>d__27.MoveNext()
   at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw()

  This exception was originally thrown at this call stack:
    SoapCore.Meta.MetaBodyWriter.WriteParameters(System.Xml.XmlDictionaryWriter, SoapCore.ServiceModel.SoapMethodParameterInfo[], bool)
    [Call Stack Truncated]

Exception when the service operation is invoked:

  Message=The body of the message cannot be read because it is empty.
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.Message.GetReaderAtBodyContents()
   at SoapCore.SoapEndpointMiddleware`1.<ProcessOperation>d__20.MoveNext()
   at System.Runtime.ExceptionServices.ExceptionDispatchInfo.Throw()

  This exception was originally thrown at this call stack:
    SoapCore.SoapEndpointMiddleware<T_MESSAGE>.ProcessOperation(Microsoft.AspNetCore.Http.HttpContext, System.IServiceProvider)

It would be nice if the library could support this. If you like i can create a pull request with a resolution.
