C# MRDS: Why are the handlers virtual?

Can somebody familiar with microsoft robotics studio please explain why the handler operations are virtual and some are set as non-virtual ?

[ServiceHandler(ServiceHandlerBehavior.Concurrent)] public virtual IEnumerator<ITask> GetHandler(Get get) { get.ResponsePort.Post(_state); yield break; }


[ServiceHandler(ServiceHandlerBehavior.Concurrent)] public IEnumerator<ITask> SubscribeHandler(Subscribe subscribe) { SubscribeRequestType request = subscribe.Body; LogInfo("Subscribe request from: " + request.Subscriber); // Use the Subscription Manager to handle the subscribers yield return Arbiter.Choice( SubscribeHelper(_submgrPort, request, subscribe.ResponsePort), delegate(SuccessResult success) { // Send a notification on successful subscription so that the // subscriber can initialize its own state base.SendNotificationToTarget<Replace>(request.Subscriber, _submgrPort, _state); }, delegate(Exception e) { LogError(null, "Subscribe failed", e); } ); yield break; }

Thanks in advance.


Virtual handlers are used in classes you expect to use as base for other classes. Handlers that are not virtual are either declared as overrides in derived classes, or in classes that will not be derived (as is often the case in sample code).
