3 Protocol Details
The following sections specify details of the IManagedObject Interface Protocol, including abstract data model, interface method syntax, and message processing rules.
The IRemoteDispatch and IServicedComponentInfo client applications initiate the conversation with the server by performing DCOMactivation ([MS-DCOM] section 220.127.116.11.1) of an application-specific CLSID of an object that supports these interfaces. After the client application uses activation to get the interface pointer to the DCOM object, it works with this object by making calls on the DCOM interface supported by the object. After it has finished making calls, the client application does a release on the interface pointer.
