DiscoveryService Class

An abstract base class used to implement a discovery service.


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

public abstract class DiscoveryService

The DiscoveryService type exposes the following members.

Protected methodDiscoveryService()Initializes a new instance of the DiscoveryService class.
Protected methodDiscoveryService(DiscoveryMessageSequenceGenerator)Initializes a new instance of the DiscoveryService class with the specified DiscoveryMessageSequenceGenerator.
Protected methodDiscoveryService(DiscoveryMessageSequenceGenerator, Int32)Initializes a new instance of the DiscoveryService class with the specified DiscoveryMessageSequenceGenerator and duplicate message history length.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOnBeginFindOverride this method to handle a find operation.
Protected methodOnBeginResolveOverride this method to handle a resolve operation.
Protected methodOnEndFindOverride this method to handle the completion of a find operation.
Protected methodOnEndResolveOverride this method to handle the completion of a resolve operation.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

When a ServiceDiscoveryBehavior is added to a service, a default DiscoveryService implementation is used to handle Find and Resolve requests. Extend this class to implement a custom discovery service that has behavior different from the default implementation, such as to reply to Find requests using a custom matching algorithm
