COM and .NET Interoperabilityby Andrew Troelsen
Synopses & Reviews
COM and .NET Interoperability provides a complete overview of the process of building .NET applications that interact (interoperate) with existing COM code. Before digging into that critical topic, author Andrew Troelsen offers a concise overview of the COM architecture and provides examples using various COM frameworks (C++, ATL, and VB 6.0) as well as the core .NET managed languages (C# and VB .NET).
After covering the preliminaries, the book explores numerous issues that arise in interoperability, including interacting with the Win32 API, dynamically generating source code via System.CodeDOM, creating serviced (COM+) components using managed code, manually editing (and recompiling) .NET metadata, and the process of constructing custom COM/.NET conversion utilities. Both intermediate and advanced developers will welcome the practical information they need to quickly work with COM and COM+ in .NET applications, and learn how to create .NET components that are COM compatible.
Troelsen offers a concise overview of the COM architecture, and provides examples using COM frameworks (C++, ATL, and VB 6.0). Next, the reader will learn the core aspects of the .NET platform and come to understand the use of both C# and VB .NET during the process.
COM is a platform-independent, distributed, object-oriented sytem for creating binary software components that can interact. COM is the foundation technology for Microsoft's OLE (compound documents) and ActiveX (Internet-enabled components) technologies, as well as others. "COM and .NET Interoperability" provides a complete overview on the process of building .NET applications which interact (interoperate) with existing COM code. Before digging into that critical topic, Andrew offers a concise overview of the COM architecture, and provides examples using various COM frameworks (C++, ATL, and VB 6.0). Next, the reader will learn the core aspects of the .NET platform and come to understand the use of both C# and VB .NET during the process. With these primers aside, the remainder of the book covers numerous interoperability issues including interacting with the Windows API, event programming, and the process of building custom code conversion utilities.
