Microsoft .Net Remoting (Pro-Developer)by Scott Mclean
Synopses & Reviews
This title shows developers how to build Internet-based, distributed applications using Microsoft .NET Remoting, which enables powerful remote interaction among objects. A fundamental understanding of .NET Remoting is crucial as developers shift to developing distributed, Internet-based applications. Until recently, DCOM was the preferred method for developing distributed applications on Microsoft platforms. But as this book demonstrates, the .NET Remoting architecture is much easier to use and extend than DCOM. The book covers all aspects of .NET Remoting, including in-depth coverage of the .NET Remoting architecture plus concrete examples, best practices, and performance tips to show how to extend and customize the framework.
Book News Annotation:
Intended for programmers familiar with the .NET framework, this guide explains how to build distributed applications with the .NET remoting technology, and provides examples in C# that demonstrate how to extend and customize .NET remoting. The authors, who are software engineers at XcelleNet, describe client-activated objects, three methods of developing custom proxies, each of the different context-related message sinks, and the creation of custom channels.
