Represents the context in which a build-up or tear-down operation runs.

Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif IBuilderStrategy
Represents a strategy in the IBuilder's chain of responsibility. Strategies are required to support both BuildUp and TearDown. Although you can implement this interface directly, you may also choose to use BuilderStrategy as the base class for your strategies, as this class provides useful helper methods and makes support BuildUp and TearDown optional.
Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif IBuildKey
Represents a build key based on type.
Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif IBuildKeyMappingPolicy

Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif IDynamicBuilderMethodCreatorPolicy
This interface defines a policy that manages creation of the dynamic methods used by the ObjectBuilder code generation. This way, we can replace the details of how the dynamic method is created to handle differences in common language runtime (like Silverlight versus desktop) or security policies.

Represents a lifetime container.
Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif ILifetimeFactoryPolicy

Data structure that stores the set of IRequiresRecovery objects and executes them when requested.
Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif IRequiresRecovery
This interface provides a hook for the builder context to implement error recovery when a builder strategy throws an exception. Since we can't get try/finally blocks onto the call stack for later stages in the chain, we instead add these objects to the context. If there's an exception, all the current IRequiresRecovery instances will have their Recover methods called.
Ee651008.pubinterface(en-us,PandP.10).gif IStagedStrategyChain
This interface defines a standard method to convert any StagedStrategyChain<TStageEnum> regardless of the stage enum into a regular, flat strategy chain.
