I have developed plugins that implement OperationAdvisors and OperationParticipants for work item save and changeset/baseline delivery operations ("" and "", resp).

I also need to support snapshot events. I have several questions, starting with:
  1. What's the difference between "operations" and "events" with regard to Operation Behavior and Event Handling?
  2. Are there separate APIs for operations and events? If so, what is the API for events, and where are the event types enumerated (and, hopefully, documented)?
  3. Is there any information for event handling, similar to or along the lines of the RTC 3.x/4.x Extensions Workshops (,
  4. Any pointers into the client API classes that would help?

Thanks in advance for all suggestions, advice, etc.

For what it's worth, at various times I found info in client API docs that helped me, even on the server side, where it was often hard to find anything. I can't remember it that applied in this case, but I did eventually find a solution in which I subclassed IChangeEventHandler.
