PeerResolver Class

Specifies a base type used to define the contract for the registration and resolution of a peer mesh ID to the endpoint addresses of nodes participating in the mesh.


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

public abstract class PeerResolver

The PeerResolver type exposes the following members.

Protected methodPeerResolverInitializes a new instance of the PeerResolver class.

Public propertyCanShareReferralsGets whether the peer name resolver can share referrals.

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 methodInitializeInitializes the current peer resolver instance with the new supplied endpoint address and settings.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRegisterRegisters a PeerNodeAddress for a specific peer mesh.
Public methodResolveResolves the supplied mesh ID to zero or more endpoint addresses of nodes participating in the peer mesh.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodUnregisterRemoves the registration entry for a node from a peer mesh.
Public methodUpdateUpdates the PeerNodeAddress for a node registered with a specific peer mesh.

This class is the base class for the implementation of custom peer name resolvers. A peer name resolver is a discovery service used by peer channels to find peer nodes participating in a peer mesh. It is also used to "register" a node with a peer mesh, the mechanism by which the peer node becomes known and available from the peer mesh.
