This chapter gets you started with your first remoting application. Before going directly into the code, I present the distinctions between .NET Remoting and other distributed application frameworks. I then introduce you to the basic types of remote objects, which are server-activated objects and client-activated objects, and show you how to pass data by value. I also give you some basic information about lifetime management issues and the generation of metadata, which is needed for the client to know about the interfaces of the server-side objects.
