ServerContextClass Class

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

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux


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.
