Using "Microsoft "R" Mastering Enterprise Development With Microsoft "R" Visual Basic "R" 6.0," programmers proficient in desktop and database application design learn how to create their first three-tier, client/server enterprise solutions. Instruction begins with an introduction to Microsoft's Enterprise Development Strategy and progresses through essential development topics including COM DLLs, Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) services, middle-tier data access, stored procedures and SQL transactions, security, component programming, and advanced client/server technologies. The companion lab exercises provide "learn-by-doing" practice with critical programming tasks. By the end of the course, students have created a full-featured enterprise solution. As a complement to the text, the Microsoft Mastering CD-ROM contains the course labs in interactive multimedia format and complete source code.
