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

Public Class OptionalReliableSession _
	Inherits ReliableSession
Dim instance As OptionalReliableSession

The ability to enable a reliable session is provided with three of the system-provided bindings. A reliable session is:

The following example shows how to create a new reliable session, access and change the default values of that session.

Private Sub Run()
    Dim b As New WSHttpBinding()
    b.Name = "HttpOrderedReliableSessionBinding" 

    ' Get a reference to the OptionalreliableSession object of the  
    ' binding and set its properties to new values. 
    Dim myReliableSession As OptionalReliableSession = b.ReliableSession
    myReliableSession.Enabled = True ' The default is false.
    myReliableSession.Ordered = False ' The default is true. 
    myReliableSession.InactivityTimeout = New TimeSpan(0, 15, 0)
    ' The default is 10 minutes. 
    ' Create a URI for the service's base address. 
    Dim baseAddress As New Uri("http://localhost:8008/Calculator")

    ' Create a service host. 
    Dim sh As New ServiceHost(GetType(Calculator), baseAddress)

    ' Optional: Print out the binding information. 
    ' Create a URI for an endpoint, then add a service endpoint using the 
    ' binding with the latered OptionalReliableSession settings.
    sh.AddServiceEndpoint(GetType(ICalculator), b, "ReliableCalculator")

End Sub 

Private Sub PrintBindingInfo(ByVal b As WSHttpBinding)
    Console.WriteLine("Enabled: {0}", b.ReliableSession.Enabled)
    Console.WriteLine("Ordered: {0}", b.ReliableSession.Ordered)
    Console.WriteLine("Inactivity in Minutes: {0}", b.ReliableSession.InactivityTimeout.TotalMinutes)

End Sub
