"...Overall a good book, clear and written in an easy to read style...recommended..." (CVu, August 2002)

From the Back Cover

A comprehensive tutorial that shows you how to use Windows Services to implement Windows NT/2000 application servers

Programming Windows(r) Services The biggest development in Microsoft Windows in the last couple of years is the introduction of Windows NT/2000 application servers. Randy Morin covers the broad range of topics that you'll need to know in order to implement these servers using Windows Services. Inside, you'll find a template that you can use to create Windows Services with a variety of programming tools such as Visual Basic, C++, and Delphi. You'll also discover how to develop Windows Services that use sockets, DCOM, CORBA, and other distribute-transports to communicate with the outside world.

As you progress to more advanced

topics, you'll learn how to develop professional Windows Services using the Event Log. Morin also explains how to secure your application server using Windows security and configure your Windows Service to work with the different security services available on the NT/2000 platform. And with the help of numerous examples, you'll find out how to utilize various techniques to debug your service.

This book will show you how to:
* Optimize the Event Log
* Utilize NT/2000 management functions like MMC, the Registry, and the Control Panel
* Configure the Windows Registry, initialization files, control panel applets, the Microsoft management console, and more
* Develop NT/2000 Services that use sockets and socket clients
* Deal with security and debugging issues
* Develop frameworks using sockets, DCOM, CORBA, and MSMQ The CD-ROM contains the complete source code from the book.

i highly recommend this book for those of you who stroll underneath the covers of nt. this was one of the few books that actually explained, with simplistic but detailed enough code examples about topics that are taboo to most authors. Areas such as the eventlog, services, the underpinnings of programmatic security. Enough information is provided so as not to overwhelm, yet stir up enough new thoughts to begin experimenting on your own. *****
a bonus * to the author for being available to answer email questions related to the text.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Programming Windows Services", although archaeologically dated, is indispensable to effective current design of services in C++. I could only find sporadic information on the internet to do the same type of work. And most of the information is contradictory to other information and some of it references headers and OS features that were obsolete when Windows 2000 was released. Also, you can't beat the cost, the new version contains the CD which will save you hundreds of dollars in wasted typing time.

I found thorough information on programming control of the Service Control Manager and designing a C++ class to manage the service operations. This is saving me a LOT of time at work.

The book also has chapters on Security issues and Debugging that can save your application in the real world from invasive control and an ever increasing degree of development time.

I am going to treasure this book and keep it around for another ten years, just in case I need it again to build a high speed service. By the way, C++ services are several times faster than the commonly touted Web Services applications.

The book provides an overview of common server types and implements a successful framework for each. The book describes exactly the evolution of my server before I read the book. I used the framework to create a smooth working server.
