Specify Queue to enable the specified session to queue events. If the specified mechanism is Queue, you must call WaitOnEvent to wait for enabled events that might have occurred. When you specify Handler, applications can enable the session to invoke a callback method to execute the handler. In order to enable events with the Handler mechanism, applications must install at least one handler.
