XNA Streaming – Part4

In the previous parts of this articles I’ve talked about the service components of the XNA Streaming system. In this part, I’m going to talk about the Communication Broker.

The role of the Communication Broker is to cover the communication with the Streaming Service. By doing so, the code required of client applications is simplified, and less duplicate code will be generated for each application using the system. the broker also caches all variable changes and periodically sends all changes accumulated to the service, thus reducing the number of calls per second required by a single client to a predictable amount.
