Making Objects Remotable

This topic is specific to a legacy technology that is retained for backward compatibility with existing applications and is not recommended for new development. Distributed applications should now be developed using the  Windows Communication Foundation (WCF).

The .NET remoting infrastructure enables object references to cross application-domain and context boundaries. This section describes those boundaries and how different types of objects cross them.
