Remoting is the cornerstone of a distributed application, and the BCL provides excellent support for making and receiving remote method calls. Calls may be synchronous or asynchronous; support request/response or one-way modes; can be delivered over multiple transports (TCP, HTTP, and SMTP); and can be serialized in multiple formats (SOAP and binary). The remoting infrastructure supports multiple activation models, lease-based object lifetimes, distributed object identity, object marshaling by reference and by value, and message interception. These types can be extended with user-defined channels, serializers, proxies, and call context.
