Activity Class

Creates an activity to do synchronous or asynchronous batch work that can use COM+ services without needing to create a COM+ component. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.EnterpriseServices
Assembly: System.EnterpriseServices (in system.enterpriseservices.dll)

public sealed class Activity
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(false) */ 
public final class Activity
public final class Activity

The context associated with the activity is completely determined by a ServiceConfig object.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Activity class and use the synchronization service.

class SvcClass: IServiceCall 
    static int callNumber = 0;
    public void OnCall()
        System.Guid contextID = ContextUtil.ContextId;
        Console.WriteLine("This is call number "+ callNumber.ToString()); 
        System.TimeSpan sleepTime = new System.TimeSpan(0,0,0,10); 
class EnterpriseServicesActivityClass
static void Main(string[] args)
        ServiceConfig serviceConfig = new ServiceConfig();
        serviceConfig.Synchronization = SynchronizationOption.Required;
        serviceConfig.ThreadPool = ThreadPoolOption.MTA;
        SvcClass serviceCall = new SvcClass();
    Activity activity = new Activity(serviceConfig); 
        Console.WriteLine("Waiting for asynchronous calls to terminate");


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
