Managing Component ConnectionsThe Component Manager provides a number of routines that help your component manage the connections it maintains with its client applications and components.
SetComponentInstanceStorageprocedure to inform the Component Manager of the memory your component is using to maintain global data for a connection. Whenever the client application issues a request to the connection, the Component Manager provides to your component the handle to the allocated memory for that connection along with the parameters for the request. You can also use the
GetComponentInstanceStoragefunction to retrieve a handle to the storage for a connection.
CountComponentInstancesfunction to count all the connections that are currently maintained by your component. This routine is similar to the
CountComponentsroutine that the Component Manager provides to client applications and components.
SetComponentInstanceA5procedure to set the A5 world for a connection. Once you set the A5 world for a connection, the Component Manager automatically switches the contents of the A5 register when your component receives a request for that connection. When your component returns to the Component Manager,
the Component Manager restores the A5 register. Your component can use the
GetComponentInstanceA5function to retrieve the A5 world for a connection.
