ServerContext Class

The ServerContext object used for working with ArcObjects in the GIS server.

Interfaces Description
IServerContext Provides access to members for managing a server context, and the objects running within that server context.


A ServerContext is a reserved space within the server dedicated to a set of running objects. GIS server objects also live in a server context. When developing applications with ArcGIS for Server, all ArcObjects that your application creates and uses live within a server context.

This object supports a single interface: IServerContext. You can get at the server object running within a server context using the ServerObject property on IServerContext. IServerContext also contains methods for creating and managing objects running within the ServerContext.

You get a ServerContext by calling the CreateServerContext method on IServerObjectManager.
