Overview

Microsoft .NET marks a huge advance in software development. However, organizations have invested heavily in their existing software infrastructure. Consequently, a lengthy transition period will be necessary in which the new .NET platform must interoperate with old systems. There are major areas of incompatibility between the COM and .NET technologies that prevent a simple automated strategy from migrating much VB6 code into Visual Basic .NET. This book investigates these incompatibilities and shows you how to work around them. We start by covering COM interoperability in detail, and then broaden the focus to examine a range of issues that must be handled in order for VB6 and COM code to work with .NET.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Visual Basic .NET ain't your father's Visual Basic, and migrating your father's Visual Basic code calls for serious tweaking. Some of it isn't worth changing: The real issue is choosing the right .NET interoperability strategy. Some of it is worth changing, and some changes can be automated through Microsoft's upgrade wizard -- but not all, not by a long shot. For developers who want to understand their options, Microsoft's white papers represent a good start. Developers who want to actually migrate code or make it interoperate need more: Professional Visual Basic Interoperability.

This book systematically reviews the issues and offers detailed code solutions (or, in some cases, workarounds). You've got COM components: here's how to call them from .NET (or, conversely, call .NET assemblies from COM). You're dealing with threading issues for the first time. You've got ADO-based database access: should you keep using it, or move to ADO.NET? OK, you're not writing new static DLLs, but what about the old ones? When it makes sense to migrate VB6 code, what should you do before you run the wizard?

If you're moving to VB .NET, this is the stuff you've got to know. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services.
