The Visual Basic COM+ Programming Bible is for experienced Visual Basic 6 programmers who are making the transition from traditional client-server to multi-tier Windows DNA applications.
In its first two sections, this new addition to the Programming Bible series offers a thorough introduction to ActiveX, COM, DCOM and COM+ and shows how to build ActiveX controls and robust COM+ components using the latest version of Visual Basic and the forthcoming COM+ 1.0 component services of Windows 2000. The third and final section of the book shows how components can be combined to build a complete distributed application that draws on Windows 2000 application services, including those of MTS, MSMQ, ASP and SQL Server. The book is organized as reference with entries that include tutorials, step-by-step instructions, code samples and other elements designed to speed mastery of the subject matter. The book favors depth of coverage of beginning to intermediate COM+ topics to provide the new Visual Basic COM+ programmer with a solid grounding in the subject.
