CompositeDuplexElement Class

Represents the configuration element that is used when the client must expose an endpoint for the service to send messages over HTTP. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public final class CompositeDuplexElement extends BindingElementExtensionElement

This configuration element adds two-way messaging to a custom binding. It is used with transports that do not allow duplex communications natively, for example, HTTP. TCP, by contrast, allows duplex communications natively, and does not require the use of this binding element for the service to send messages back to a client.

The client must expose an address for the service to make contact and establish a connection. This client address is provided by the ClientBaseAddress property.

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