Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows PhoneIDisposable.DisposeCloses the current channel factory.
Top

Channel factories that implement the IChannelFactory interface and their associated channels are generally used by the initiators of a communication pattern. Listener factories that implement the IChannelListener interface and their associated listeners provide the mechanisms with which channels are accepted for communications.

This class is not part of the channel model, but of the service model. The CreateFactory method provides the means to create an IChannelFactory for a service endpoint. Use it to construct a client that hooks up to an interface contract on the service without using metadata or policy.
