ATL Internals: Working with ATL 8by Christopher Tavares
Synopses & Reviews
The Classic Guide to ATL–Now Updated for ATL 8 and Visual Studio 2005
Four leading Windows programming experts systematically reveal ATL’s inner workings, explaining not just how ATL works, but why it works the way it does. Client-side developers will master ATL’s resources for windowing, COM control, MFC integration, web service proxy generation, and more. Server-side programmers will discover ATL’s full COM server and object services, and its extensive support for high-throughput, high-concurrency web applications, and services. Every Windows developer will learn powerful ways to increase flexibility, reduce overhead, and maximize transparency and control.
• Discover ATL’s internals through diagrams, example code, and internal ATL implementation code
• Walk through wizards that simplify ATL usage in common applications
• Master string handling in C++, COM, and ATL
• Leverage ATL smart types, including CComPtr, CComQIPtr, CComBSTR, and CComVariant
• Understand and choose the right options for implementing IUnknown
• Create glue code that exposes COM objects from COM servers
• Use canned interface implementations to support object persistence, COM
collections, enumerators, and connection points
• Build standalone applications and UI components with ATL window classes
• Use ATL Server to develop web applications that run on Microsoft IIS
Book News Annotation:
This volume explains how and why ATL works, its design and use, for C++/COM programmers switching to ATL 8. Previous knowledge of COM is assumed. Chapters survey common uses, strings and text, smart types, objects, servers, interface maps and implementations, and building standalone applications and user interface components. This edition has been updated for version 8 and Visual Studio 2005. It covers attributes in the appendix and ATL Server. Tavares is a software development engineer at Microsoft and specializes in patterns and practices.
