public sealed class ActivationArguments : System.Security.Policy.EvidenceBase


The System.Runtime.Hosting.ActivationArguments class is used by the AppDomainSetup class.

The manifest-based activation model uses an application manifest rather than an assembly for activation. A manifest fully describes the application, its dependencies, security requirements, and so forth. The manifest model has several advantages over the assembly-based activation model, especially for Web applications. For example, the manifest contains the security requirements of the application, which enables the user to decide whether to allow the application to execute before downloading the code. The manifest also contains information about the application dependencies.
