Remarks

The StreamResourceInfo class is not just for pure application model scenarios. You can use a StreamResourceInfo to process a stream that happens to be a package (a XAP or ZIP file). This is useful if you have returned an asynchronous stream result from a WebClient request and the returned stream is really a package that contains multiple parts. To get at these parts, you must request each of the parts as a URI that you specify in the GetResourceStream call, with the initial package specified as the StreamResourceInfo for the zipPackageStreamResourceInfo parameter.
