Advanced .NET Remoting is the first book on the market that offers in-depth coverage of the .NET Remoting Framework. The book is divided into two sectionsthe first detailing the specifics of the framework and its capabilities in real-world applications. Topics include formatters, channels, lifetime issues, security, configuration files, and the basics of server-activated objects versus client-activated objects. Also covered in detail are Windows Services, IIS, and server-side hosting of remotable components in console applications.
The second part of the book presents an unprecedented view of .NET Remoting internals. Author Ingo Rammer shows how the framework uses message sinks and sink providers, and gives in-depth instruction on how to implement message and channel sinks. These chapters also give insight into the synchronous and asynchronous message processing within the framework.
Going far beyond the information youll gather from Microsoft's documentation, Rammer explains how .NET Remoting really works, and how it can be extended. The book also includes a chapter on the development process and source code for several real-world message sinks, and shows you how to develop a custom Remoting transport channel from scratch. It concludes with detailed coverage of the ContextBoundObject class and .NET contexts, essential for using the technology within individual, client-only applications.

As with any text there are a number of minor errors and typos. But this book has been out a year and a half and no corrections have been released. Most of the examples do not run under VS 2003 and the general 2003 fix listed on apress.com does not work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I had a project that I had to get done where the most obvious course of action was to set up two processes that would talk to each other through events over .NET remoting. I had never used .NET remoting before, though, so I needed some good training materials. I looked at examples I found on the internet and the examples provided in MSDN, and I got absolutely nowhere. I had no idea what was going wrong, and no idea of how to find out what was going wrong. Enter Ingo Rammer. I picked this book up and within half an hour the examples got me farther along than I had gotten in the previous three days working with MSDN. The design was tight, and more importantly, it worked flawlessly the first time. About half of this book is dedicated to just getting you working, and it does a great job. The other half of the book digs deeper into the details of how things are working, and someday I'm sure that will help me out a great deal, as well. The thing about Ingo Rammer is that his help doesn't stop with this book. Go look for answers to your remoting problem in the microsoft newsgroups, and you'll see that his guidance is all over the place in there, from the simplest problems to the most comples. He's like some kind of friggin' machine. So, yeah. Great book, incredibly helpful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book should be called Basic .NET Remoting not Advanced .NET Remoting becuase it teaches basic remoting topics. An Advanced Remoting topic would have more depth in extending Remoting. This book dedicates only 8 pages to this task of extending the RemotingProxy, where there is a lot more that could be done such as extending the remoting proxy to communicate between AppDomains. However with this said, this is a good Remoting book that covers the basics of Remoting in depth and I would recommend it to developers trying to use Remoting and considering to extend it. It will certainly get you started...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
