XmlBinaryReaderSession Class

Enables optimized strings to be managed in a dynamic way.


Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Runtime.Serialization (in System.Runtime.Serialization.dll)

public class XmlBinaryReaderSession : IXmlDictionary

The XmlBinaryReaderSession type exposes the following members.

Public methodXmlBinaryReaderSessionCreates an instance of this class.

Public methodAddCreates an XmlDictionaryString from the input parameters and adds it to an internal collection
Public methodClearClears the internal collection of all contents.
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.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodTryLookup(Int32, XmlDictionaryString)Checks whether the internal collection contains an entry matching a key.
Public methodTryLookup(String, XmlDictionaryString)Checks whether the internal collection contains an entry matching a value.
Public methodTryLookup(XmlDictionaryString, XmlDictionaryString)Checks whether the internal collection contains an entry matching a value.

Session objects (this class together with XmlBinaryWriterSession) enable dynamic string atomization that can span an entire conversation. These session objects manage dynamic dictionaries of XmlDictionaryString instances. For more information about dynamic dictionaries see XmlDictionary.

Due to asynchronous processing, it is possible for messages that arrive synchronously to be processed in a different order than they order in which they were sent. String atomization that spans messages must ensure the message are processed in the original order, or the atomized strings must be conveyed using a different mechanism.

To use them you create a session object and pass it to the constructor or initializer for a binary XML reader or writer.

To reuse a dynamic dictionary simply pass the same session object to all subsequent readers and/or writers.
