William Rubin and Marshall Brain first reduce DCOM to its essentials as a straightforward system for building reusable components. Next, using extensive examples and sample code, they demonstrate exactly how to implement and test sophisticated DCOM-based distributed applications. Discover how DCOM objects, proxy/stubs, servers, interfaces, and other elements fit together into a coherent whole. Learn the relationship of DCOM to COM, OLE, and competing technologies. Create COM classes, interfaces, connection points, and Singleton objects. Rubin and Brain demonstrate and compare all three leading approaches to DCOM development: usi
