ServerAgent class

Communications Server 2007 Server SDK Documentation


The ServerAgent class implements an Office Communications Server agent.

Applications use ServerAgent objects to interact with the Office Communications Server. Each object of this class represents a logical SIP application to the server. Most applications will create only one such object, but in special cases, it may be necessary to create multiple server agent objects (such as for logging all incoming and all outgoing messages).

Before a ServerAgent object is instantiated, an application manifest should be created to describe the application to the server and provide the message filtering service.

This class implemented the IDisposable interface.

The ServerAgent class is derived from the System.Object class.

Public Constructors

The ServerAgent class has the following public constructors.

ServerAgent(ApplicationManifest manifest)

Creates an instance of a ServerAgent object with the specified application manifest.

Note????This constructor is for script-only applications.

ServerAgent(Object app, ApplicationManifest manifest)

Creates an instance of a ServerAgent object with the specified dispatch handler object and application manifest.

Note????This constructor is for applications with a managed code component that handles dispatched messages.

Public Methods

The ServerAgent class has the following public methods.


Static (Shared). Closes an open Windows object handle.


Terminates interaction with the Office Communications Server and releases all resources consumed by this object.


Inherited from System.Object. Determines whether the specified System.Object is equal to the current System.Object.


Inherited from System.Object. Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.


Inherited from System.Object. Gets the System.Type of the current instance.


Removes an event from the server queue and processes it.


Inherited from System.Object. Returns a System.String that represents the current System.Object.


Static (Shared). Checks to see if the Office Communications Server process has started and initialized.

Note????Applications should call this method before they create their first ServerAgent object.

PoolData type: string
Access type: Read-only
