Detailed Description

Managed object reference.

Only within the webservice, a managed object reference (which is really an opaque number) allows a webservice client to address an object that lives in the address space of the webservice server.

Behind each managed object reference, there is a COM object that lives in the webservice server's address space. The COM object is not freed until the managed object reference is released, either by an explicit call to IManagedObjectRef::release or by logging off from the webservice (IWebsessionManager::logoff), which releases all objects created during the webservice session.

Whenever a method call of the VirtualBox API returns a COM object, the webservice representation of that method will instead return a managed object reference, which can then be used to invoke methods on that object.
