Advanced .NET Remoting is the first book on the market that offers in-depth coverage of the .NET Remoting Framework. The book is divided into two sections--the first detailing the specifics of the framework and its capabilities in real-world applications. Topics include formatters, channels, lifetime issues, security, configuration files, and the basics of server-activated objects versus client-activated objects. Also covered in detail are Windows Services, IIS, and server-side hosting of remotable components in console applications.
The second part of the book presents an unprecedented view of .NET Remoting internals. Author Ingo Rammer shows how the framework uses message sinks and sink providers, and gives in-depth instruction on how to implement message and channel sinks. These chapters also give insight into the synchronous and asynchronous message processing within the framework.
Going far beyond the information you'll gather from Microsoft's documentation, Rammer explains how .NET Remoting really works, and how it can be extended. The book also includes a chapter on the development process and source code for several real-world message sinks, and shows you how to develop a custom Remoting transport channel from scratch. It concludes with detailed coverage of the ContextBoundObject class and .NET contexts, essential for using the technology within individual, client-only applications....Continua
