public interface ISponsor


Requests a sponsoring client to renew the lease for the specified object.

An object must implement the ISponsor interface if it needs to request a lease renewal for a particular object. An object that implements the ISponsor interface can become a sponsor by registering itself with the lease manager. The ISponsor interface is used by the lifetime service to call back to the sponsor.

public class MyClientSponsor : MarshalByRefObject, ISponsor
   private DateTime lastRenewal;
   public MyClientSponsor()
      lastRenewal = DateTime.Now;

   [SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags=SecurityPermissionFlag.Infrastructure)]
   public TimeSpan Renewal(ILease lease)
      Console.WriteLine("Request to renew the lease time.");
      Console.WriteLine("Time since last renewal: " + 
         (DateTime.Now - lastRenewal).ToString());

      lastRenewal = DateTime.Now;
      return TimeSpan.FromSeconds(20);
