WebScriptServiceHostFactory Class

Automatically adds an ASP.NET AJAX endpoint to a service, without requiring configuration, in a managed hosting environment that dynamically activates host instances for the service in response to incoming messages.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Activation
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel.Web (in System.ServiceModel.Web.dll)

Public Class WebScriptServiceHostFactory _
	Inherits ServiceHostFactory
Dim instance As WebScriptServiceHostFactory

This factory provides a way to add an ASP.NET AJAX endpoint to a service without requiring configuration. The endpoint is added to any other endpoints that are defined in configuration, if any. The managed hosting environments that support this type of dynamic host activation are Internet Information Services (IIS) and Windows Process Activation Services (WAS).

To use this factory, specify the WebScriptServiceHostFactory in the Factory attribute of the @ServiceHost directive.

The ASP.NET AJAX endpoint created by this factory is configured with the WebHttpBinding and the WebScriptEnablingBehavior, with all the default settings. The endpoint is created at an empty address relative to the .svc file. If service configuration already defines an endpoint at this address, an InvalidOperationException is thrown and the service fails to start.

Specify the WebScriptServiceHostFactory for the value of the Factory attribute in the @ServiceHost directive to activate an ASP.NET AJAX endpoint for the MyService service as shown in the following example.

<% @ServiceHost
