PrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter Class

Represents a query that tests whether a message matches an EndpointAddress using a Longest-Prefix Match for the URI component.


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

public class PrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter : MessageFilter

The PrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter type exposes the following members.

Public methodPrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter(EndpointAddress)Initializes a new instance of the PrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter class.
Public methodPrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter(EndpointAddress, Boolean)Initializes a new instance of the PrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter class.

Public propertyAddressGets the Endpoint Address that the PrefixEndpointAddressMessageFilter tests messages against.
Public propertyIncludeHostNameInComparisonGets a value that indicates whether the host name is included in the endpoint address comparison.

Protected methodCreateFilterTable<FilterData>Creates a new filter table that tests a message against multiple endpoint addresses simultaneously. (Overrides MessageFilter.CreateFilterTable<FilterData>().)
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.)
Public methodMatch(Message)Tests whether a message satisfies the specified endpoint address. (Overrides MessageFilter.Match(Message).)
Public methodMatch(MessageBuffer)Tests whether a buffered message satisfies the specified endpoint address. (Overrides MessageFilter.Match(MessageBuffer).)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

An EndpointAddress object includes a URI and an optional collection of addressing headers. The addressing and message headers are canonicalized to be compared for equality. If a parameter appears more than once in an EndpointAddress, the corresponding header must appear in the message at least that many times.

This filter performs the same query as EndpointAddressMessageFilter, except that the test for whether a message matches an endpoint address is done by a Longest-Prefix Match. This means that the URI specified in the filter does not have to match the message's URI exactly, but must be contained in that URI as a prefix. For example, if a filter specifies the address "", and a message is addressed to "", then the URI part of the filter query condition will be met. However, the header portion of the filter query still has to be done.

Internet Information Services (IIS) and the underlying file system (NTFS or FAT) are case-insensitive. URI comparisons done by this class are also case-insensitive. So, for example, is evaluated as equal to
