XmlBinaryReaderSession Class

Enables optimized strings to be managed in a dynamic way.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Runtime.Serialization (in System.Runtime.Serialization.dll)

public class XmlBinaryReaderSession : IXmlDictionary

Session objects (this class together with XmlBinaryWriterSession) enable dynamic string atomization that can span an entire conversation. These session objects manage dynamic dictionaries of XmlDictionaryString instances. For more information about dynamic dictionaries see XmlDictionary.

Due to asynchronous processing, it is possible for messages that arrive synchronously to be processed in a different order than they order in which they were sent. String atomization that spans messages must ensure the message are processed in the original order, or the atomized strings must be conveyed using a different mechanism.

To use them you create a session object and pass it to the constructor or initializer for a binary XML reader or writer.

To reuse a dynamic dictionary simply pass the same session object to all subsequent readers and/or writers.
