A connection must be made to the HealthVault service to access the web methods that the service exposes. The class does not maintain an open connection to the service. It uses XML over HTTP to make requests and receive responses from the service. The connection just maintains the data necessary to make the request.

You cannot directly instantiate this abstract class. Instead, instantiate an instance of ApplicationConnection or AuthenticatedConnection to communicate with the Microsoft HealthVault service.
