Subject RE: Programatically installing interceptors per (Bus|Service|Endpoint)
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2007 02:57:55 GMT
Hi Fred, 

Not sure if I understand your question correctly. If what you want is to instantiate and install
interceptors per service/endpoint/binding, for example, you may have a strategy that can load
different interceptors depending on a specific binding property, yes surely you can do this. shows how SOAP binding specific interceptors are loaded.
