WellKnownServiceTypeEntry Class


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Holds values for an object type registered on the service end as a server-activated type object (single call or singleton).

Namespace:   System.Runtime.Remoting
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)


public class WellKnownServiceTypeEntry : TypeEntry

System_CAPS_pubmethodWellKnownServiceTypeEntry(String, String, String, WellKnownObjectMode)

Initializes a new instance of the WellKnownServiceTypeEntry class with the given type name, assembly name, object URI, and WellKnownObjectMode.

System_CAPS_pubmethodWellKnownServiceTypeEntry(Type, String, WellKnownObjectMode)

Initializes a new instance of the WellKnownServiceTypeEntry class with the given Type, object URI, and WellKnownObjectMode.


Gets the assembly name of the object type configured to be a remote-activated type.(Inherited from TypeEntry.)


Gets or sets the context attributes for the server-activated service type.


Gets the WellKnownObjectMode of the server-activated service type.


Gets the Type of the server-activated service type.


Gets the URI of the well-known service type.


Gets the full type name of the object type configured to be a remote-activated type.(Inherited from TypeEntry.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the type name, assembly name, object URI and the WellKnownObjectMode of the server-activated type as a String.(Overrides Object.ToString().)

Server-activated object types can be either single call or singleton. If an object type is single call, a new instance of it is created each time a call from the client comes in. All calls to a singleton object are handled by one instance of that object.

Any client that knows the URI of this object can obtain a proxy for this object by registering the channel it prefers with ChannelServices and activating the object by calling new or Activator.GetObject.

It is important to note that the remote object itself is not created by the registration process. This only happens when a client attempts to call a method on the object or activates the object from the client side.

For a more detailed description of server-activated objects and remote object activation, see [<topic://cpconActivation>].
