SoapExtension - Match response with request RRS feed

  • Question

  • Given a SoapExtension, I am assuming the messages coming thru the ProcessMessage() method can be synchronous; meaning on the server side, multiple requests could come thru ProcessMessage() prior to a response being returned to the client and/or the responses will not necessarily come back in the same order the requests came in.  Is that a true statement?

    Given that statement is true, I need to be able to match a response with the processing state of the request (e.g. processing state of request is determined during SoapMessageStage.AfterDeserialize).  Based on that processing state, I need to do something with the response during SoapMessageStage.BeforeSerialize.

    How to do the type of match-back?

  • Briefly, look at GetInitializer(Type) and GetInitializer(LogicalMethodInfo, SoapExtensionAttribute), as well as Initialize.

  • Not sure what you are getting at...  I have looked at these methods for initialization, but not seeing the answer to the question.  Are you saying, each request-response will be proceeded by an initialization() call (e.g. initialize(), request.., response.., initialize(), request, response, XEndOfStreamX).  

    If so, sounds like I'm good, I should be able to save off the processing state of the request as a member variable of my SoapExtension class.
