ClientViaBehavior Class

The ClientViaBehavior is used by clients to specify the URI for which the transport channel should be created.

Namespace: System.ServiceModel.Description
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in system.servicemodel.dll)

public class ClientViaBehavior : IEndpointBehavior
public class ClientViaBehavior implements IEndpointBehavior
public class ClientViaBehavior implements IEndpointBehavior
Not applicable.

If such a behavior exists in the behavior collection on a client endpoint, the transport uses the URI that it provides, while all the other channel layers in the stack use the EndpointAddress provided at ChannelFactory construction time. This EndpointAddress also becomes the WS-Addressing To header.

Use this behavior when the immediate network destination is not the intended processor of the message to enable multiple-hop conversations when the calling application does not necessarily know the ultimate destination or when the destination Via header is not an address.

You can also set this value using the <clientVia> element in a client application configuration file.
