WorkflowServiceHostFactory Class


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

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Factory that provides instances of WorkflowServiceHost in managed hosting environments where the host instance is created dynamically in response to incoming messages.

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


[<ObsoleteAttribute("The WF3 types are deprecated.  Instead, please use the new WF4 types from System.Activities.*")>]
type WorkflowServiceHostFactory = 
        inherit ServiceHostFactoryBase


Initializes a new instance of the WorkflowServiceHostFactory class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCreateServiceHost(String, Uri[])

Creates a WorkflowServiceHost from a string that contains either the file name of the workflow markup file or the type name of the workflow service type and the base address of the service specified.(Overrides ServiceHostFactoryBase.CreateServiceHost(String, Uri[]).)


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 a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The managed hosting environments that support dynamic activation are Internet Information Services (IIS) and Windows Process Activation Service (WAS).

If you have implemented a custom derivative of WorkflowServiceHost, consider also implementing a factory that derives from the WorkflowServiceHostFactory class.

If you have implemented a custom derivative of ServiceHostBase instead, then consider also implementing a factory that derives your factory from ServiceHostFactoryBase directly.
