ChannelListenerBase Class

Provides a common base implementation for channel listeners on the service.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public ref class ChannelListenerBase abstract : public ChannelManagerBase, 
	IChannelListener, ICommunicationObject

The channel listeners on the service wait for and then accept the channels created by factories on the client. Once the channel connection is established between client and service, messages can be exchanged and distributed applications can communicate. The processing functionality provided by the listener is layered into a stacked set of channel listeners to provide modularity when selecting the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) features to deploy. Each channel listener in the service stack corresponds to a channel factory in the client stack. The channel created by the factory is really a stack of channels that are accepted and processed by the stack of listeners on the service.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
