Examples

The following code example shows how to use a ActivatedClientTypeEntry to register a client activated remote object. The example contains three parts, a client, a server, and a remote object used by the client and server.

The following code example shows a client:

#using <System.Runtime.Remoting.dll>
#using <ActivatedClientTypeEntry_Share.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels::Tcp;

{
   // Register TCP Channel.
   ChannelServices::RegisterChannel( gcnew TcpChannel );
   
   // Create activated client type entry.
   ActivatedClientTypeEntry^ activatedClientTypeEntry = gcnew ActivatedClientTypeEntry( HelloServer::typeid, "tcp://localhost:8082" );
   
   // Register type on client to activate it on the server.
   RemotingConfiguration::RegisterActivatedClientType( activatedClientTypeEntry );
   
   // Activate a client activated object type.
   HelloServer^ helloServer = gcnew HelloServer( "ParameterString" );
   
   // Print the object type.
   Console::WriteLine( "Object type of client activated object: {0}", activatedClientTypeEntry->ObjectType->ToString() );
   
   // Print the application URL.
   Console::WriteLine( "Application url where the type is activated: {0}", activatedClientTypeEntry->ApplicationUrl->ToString() );
   
   // Print the string representation of the type entry.
   Console::WriteLine( "Type and assembly name and application URL of the remote object: {0}", activatedClientTypeEntry->ToString() );
   
   // Print a blank line.
   Console::WriteLine();
   
   // Check that server was located.
   if (  !helloServer )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Could not locate server" );
   }
   else

The following code example shows a server for this client:

#using <ActivatedClientTypeEntry_Share.dll>
#using <System.Runtime.Remoting.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels;
using namespace System::Runtime::Remoting::Channels::Tcp;
void main()
{
   ChannelServices::RegisterChannel( gcnew TcpChannel( 8082 ) );
   RemotingConfiguration::RegisterActivatedServiceType( HelloServer::typeid );
   Console::WriteLine( "Press enter to stop this process" );
   Console::ReadLine();
}

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.Tcp;

public class MyServer
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(new TcpChannel(8082));
        RemotingConfiguration.RegisterActivatedServiceType(typeof(HelloServer));
        Console.WriteLine("Press enter to stop this process");
        Console.ReadLine();
   }
}
Imports System

Public Class MyServer

        RemotingConfiguration.RegisterActivatedServiceType(GetType(HelloServer))
        Console.WriteLine("Press enter to stop this process")
        Console.ReadLine()
    End Sub 'Main

End Class 'MyServer

The following code example provides the remote object used by the client and the server:

using namespace System;
public ref class HelloServer: public MarshalByRefObject
{
public:
   HelloServer( String^ myString )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "HelloServer activated" );
      Console::WriteLine( "Paramater passed to the constructor is {0}", myString );
   }

   String^ HelloMethod( String^ myName )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "HelloMethod : {0}", myName );
      return String::Format( "Hi there {0}", myName );
   }

};

using System;
public class HelloServer : MarshalByRefObject
{
    public HelloServer(String myString)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("HelloServer activated");
        Console.WriteLine("Parameter passed to the constructor is "+myString);
    }
    public String HelloMethod(String myName)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("HelloMethod : {0}",myName);
        return "Hi there " + myName;
    }
}
Imports System

Public Class HelloServer
    Inherits MarshalByRefObject
    
    Public Sub New(myString As String)
        Console.WriteLine("HelloServer activated")
        Console.WriteLine("Parameter passed to the constructor is " + myString)
    End Sub 'New
    
    Public Function HelloMethod(myName As String) As String
        Console.WriteLine("HelloMethod : {0}", myName)
        Return "Hi there " + myName
    End Function 'HelloMethod
End Class 'HelloServer

Remarks

To create an instance of a client-activated object on the client, you must know its Type and it must be registered on the client by using the RegisterActivatedClientType method. To obtain a proxy for a new instance of the client-activated object the client must first register a channel with ChannelServices and then activate the object by calling new.

To activate a client-activated object type with the new keyword, you must first register the object type on the client using the RegisterActivatedClientType method. By calling RegisterActivatedClientType you are giving the remoting infrastructure the location of the remote application where new attempts to create it. If, on the other hand, you use the Activator.CreateInstance method to create a new instance of the client-activated object, you must supply the remote application's URL as a parameter, so no prior registration on the client end is necessary. To supply the Activator.CreateInstance method with the URL of the server on which you want to create the object, you must encapsulate the URL in an instance of the UrlAttribute class.

For a detailed description of client activated objects and remote object activation see [<topic://cpconActivation>].
