System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels Namespace

The System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels namespace contains classes that support and handle channels and channel sinks, which are used as the transport medium when a client calls a method on a remote object.

Remarks

Channels are objects that transport messages between applications across remoting boundaries, whether between application domains, processes, or computers. A channel can listen on an endpoint for inbound messages, send outbound messages to another endpoint, or both. This enables you to plug in a wide range of protocols, even if the common language runtime is not at the other end of the channel.

Channels send each object along a chain of channel sink objects prior to sending or after receiving a message. This sink chain contains sinks required for basic channel functionality, such as transport or stack builder sinks, but you can customize the channel sink chain to perform special tasks with a message or a stream. Each sink in each chain receives the object, performs a specific operation, and passes it on to the next sink in the chain. There is no rule that the exact object received by a message sink must be passed on to the next sink, though this will often be the case.

For more information, see Channels and Sinks and Sink Chains.

Classes

TypeReason

BaseChannelSinkWithProperties

Provides a base implementation for channel sinks that want to expose a dictionary interface to their properties.

BaseChannelWithProperties

Provides a base implementation for channels that want to expose a dictionary interface to their properties.

BinaryClientFormatterSink

Provides the implementation for a client formatter sink that uses the BinaryFormatter.

BinaryClientFormatterSinkProvider

Provides the implementation for the binary client formatter sink provider.

BinaryServerFormatterSink

Provides the implementation for a server formatter sink that uses the BinaryFormatter.

BinaryServerFormatterSink+Protocol
BinaryServerFormatterSinkProvider

Provides the implementation for the server formatter channel sink provider that uses the BinaryFormatter.

ChannelDataStore

Stores channel data for the remoting channels.

ChannelServices

Provides static methods to aid with remoting channel registration, resolution, and URL discovery. This class cannot be inherited.

ClientChannelSinkStack

Holds the stack of client channel sinks that must be invoked during an asynchronous message response decoding.

CommonTransportKeys

The transport keys associated with common values used by the channels.

IAuthorizeRemotingConnection

The IAuthorizeRemotingConnection interface provides methods that indicate whether a client is authorized to connect on the current channel, based on the client's network address and user identity.

IChannel

Provides conduits for messages that cross remoting boundaries.

IChannelDataStore

Stores channel data for the remoting channels.

IChannelReceiver

Provides required functions and properties for the receiver channels.

IChannelReceiverHook

Indicates that the implementing channel wants to hook into the outside listener service.

IChannelSender

Provides required functions and properties for the sender channels.

IChannelSinkBase

Provides the base interface for channel sinks.

IClientChannelSink

Provides required functions and properties for client channel sinks.

IClientChannelSinkProvider

IClientChannelSinkStack

Provides functionality for a stack of client channel sinks that must be invoked during an asynchronous message response decoding.

IClientFormatterSink

Marks a sink as a client formatter sink that serializes messages into a stream.

IClientFormatterSinkProvider

Marks a client channel sink provider as a client formatter sink provider.

IClientResponseChannelSinkStack

Provides the stack functionality for a stack of client response channel sinks that must be invoked during an asynchronous message response decoding.

ISecurableChannel

The ISecurableChannel contains one property, ISecurableChannel.IsSecured, which gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether the current channel is secure.

IServerChannelSink

Provides methods used for security and transport sinks.

IServerChannelSinkProvider

Creates server channel sinks for the server channel through which remoting messages flow.

IServerChannelSinkStack

Provides the stack functionality for a stack of server channel sinks.

Stores a collection of headers used in the channel sinks.

ServerChannelSinkStack

Holds the stack of server channel sinks.

ServerProcessing

Indicates the status of the server message processing.

SinkProviderData

Stores sink provider data for sink providers.

SoapClientFormatterSink

Provides the implementation for a client formatter sink that uses the SoapFormatter.

SoapClientFormatterSinkProvider
