The displayName parameter is a friendly name of the provider connection point that is used by the ConnectionsZone control to represent a provider's connection point in the UI.

The connectionPointType parameter must be a Type derived from ProviderConnectionPoint. If this parameter is specified, the Type is used to create the connection point instead of the standard ProviderConnectionPoint class provided with the Web Parts control set.
