ServerAgent class

Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1

ServerAgent

The ServerAgent class implements a Live Communications server agent.

Applications use ServerAgent objects to interact with the Live Communications Server. Each object of this class represents a logical SIP application to the server. Most applications will create only one such object, but in special cases, it may be necessary to create multiple server agent objects (such as for logging all incoming and all outgoing messages).

Before a ServerAgent object is instantiated, an application manifest should be created to describe the application to the server and provide the message filtering service.

This class implemented the IDisposable interface.

The ServerAgent class is derived from the System.Object class.

Public Constructors

The ServerAgent class has the following public constructors.

Constructor Description
ServerAgent(ApplicationManifest manifest)

Creates an instance of a ServerAgent object with the specified application manifest.

Note This constructor is for script-only applications.

ServerAgent(Object app, ApplicationManifest manifest)

Creates an instance of a ServerAgent object with the specified dispatch handler object and application manifest.

Note This constructor is for applications with a managed code component that handles dispatched messages.

Public Methods

The ServerAgent class has the following public methods.

Method Description
CloseHandle

Static (Shared). Closes an open Windows object handle.

Dispose()

Terminates interaction with the Live Communications Server and releases all resources consumed by this object.

Equals(Object)

Inherited from System.Object. Determines whether the specified System.Object is equal to the current System.Object.

GetHashCode()

Inherited from System.Object. Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.

GetType()

Inherited from System.Object. Gets the System.Type of the current instance.

ProcessEvent(Object)

Removes an event from the server queue and processes it.

ToString()

Inherited from System.Object. Returns a System.String that represents the current System.Object.

WaitForServerAvailable(Int32)

Static (Shared). Checks to see if the Live Communications Server process has started and initialized.

Note Applications should call this method before they create their first ServerAgent object.

Public Properties

The ServerAgent class has the following public properties.

Property Description
Pool Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Retrieves the name of the Enterprise Edition pool to which the server belongs.

ServerProcess Data type: System.Diagnostics.Process
Access type: Read-only

Static (Shared). Provides access to the Live Communications Server process.

WaitHandle Data type: WaitHandle
Access type: Read-only

Contains an internal handle used to signal that there is pending input from the Live Communications server that the server agent needs to process.

Public Events

The ServerAgent class has the following public event.

Event Description
ConnectionDropped

Occurs when the connection to the server has been dropped.

Protected Methods

The ServerAgent class has the following protected methods.

Method Description
CheckDisposed()

Throws ObjectDisposedException if the server agent is in the disposed state.

Dispose(Boolean)

Destroys this transaction and releases all unmanaged resources as well as optionally releasing all managed ones.

Finalize()

Provides a finalizer for this ServerAgent instance.

OnConnectionDropped()

Raises the ServerAgent.ConnectionDropped event with the supplied reason.

Remarks

Before creating an instance of this class, ServerAgent.WaitForServerAvailable should be called to determine if the Live Communications Server is available.

To terminate interaction with the server, applications should call the Dispose() method.

Requirements

Redistributable: Requires Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1.
Namespace: Microsoft.Rtc.Sip
Assembly: ServerAgent (in ServerAgent.dll)
