NetworkServer

Overview

The NetworkServer class ties together the network connectivity components like server channel, messages etc grouping them together into single configurable class. The NetworkServer is the core of a Remoting SDK Server application as it holds the server connectivity components and implement their configuration logic.

In most cases this class is used AS IS. However it might be needed to use a class descended from the NetworkServer class, f.e. in cases where custom server channels or other server connectivity components are needed to be used instead of predefined ones (f.e. the CreateJavaScriptDispatcher method could be overridden to instantiate the JavaScriptHttpDispatcher class instance instead of the default JavaScriptHttpDispatcher one).

This class implements the INetworkServer interface.
