5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful COM+ info from a VB perspective, November 20, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Programming Distributed Applications with COM+ and Microsoft Visual Basic (DV-MPS Programming) (Paperback)
I found the book invaluable. Having read quite a bit on COM and written COM components in both C++ and VB, I can understand why some readers say that the book contains COM(+) material they've read elsewhere. However, the purpose of this book as I understand it isn't to say anything new about COM, it is to set COM+ in the context of VB and discuss design considerations in that light. Want to understand why VB can't object pool the way your C++ component can? Want to know how VB hides the interface-handling plumbing of COM? Want to understand why VB's method of adding a new method can retain binary compatibility but still break an existing client (OK, you might need some knowledge base help on that)? Want some design tips on creating VB components that will be used by scripting clients? Then this is the book for you. Bottom line, this book actually helped me solve actual problems on real projects involving VB COM+ development.
