RemotingConfiguration.ApplicationName Property

Gets or sets the name of a remoting application.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Property ApplicationName As String
public static string ApplicationName {get; set;}
public: __property static String* get_ApplicationName();
public: __property static void set_ApplicationName(String*);
public static function get ApplicationName() : String;
public static function set ApplicationName(String);

Property Value

The name of a remoting application.


Exception Type Condition
SecurityException At least one of the callers higher in the callstack does not have permission to configure Remoting types and channels. This exception is thrown only when setting the property value.


An application name can be set only once, either through the current property or through a configuration file. If an application is running inside a hosted environment, such as Internet Information Services (IIS), this value might have already been set (usually to the virtual directory). The current property will return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the application name has not been set.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example demonstrates the use of the ApplicationName property to indicate the name of the remoting application. For the full example code, see examples for the RegisterWellKnownClientType and RegisterWellKnownServiceType methods.

[Visual Basic] 
ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(New TcpChannel(8082))

RemotingConfiguration.ApplicationName = "HelloServiceApplication"

RemotingConfiguration.RegisterWellKnownServiceType(GetType(HelloService), "MyUri", WellKnownObjectMode.SingleCall)

ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(new TcpChannel(8082));

RemotingConfiguration.ApplicationName = "HelloServiceApplication";

RemotingConfiguration.RegisterWellKnownServiceType( typeof(HelloService),

ChannelServices::RegisterChannel(new TcpChannel(8082));

RemotingConfiguration::ApplicationName = S"HelloServiceApplication";


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example demonstrates how to access an object remoted from a named application.

[Visual Basic] 
ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(New TcpChannel())

RemotingConfiguration.RegisterWellKnownClientType(GetType(HelloService), "tcp://localhost:8082/HelloServiceApplication/MyUri")

Dim service As New HelloService()

ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(new TcpChannel());


HelloService service = new HelloService();

ChannelServices::RegisterChannel(new TcpChannel());


HelloService* service = new HelloService();
