The C# and VB.NET Conversion Pocket Reference helps you easily make the switch from C# to Visual Basic .NET and vice versa. Differences between the two languages occur in three main areas: syntax, object-oriented principles, and the Visual Studio .NET IDE. A perfect companion for documents and books that don't have examples using your mastered language, this guide expects that you know one of the two languages, but does not make an assumption about which one.
COM+ Programming with Visual Basic draws from the author's wide experience as a COM+ developer and instructor. The first part shows you how to create robust, efficient, high-performance COM+ applications. The second focuses on incorporating individual COM+ services, like transaction support, security, and asynchronous operations, into applications. Not for beginners, this book reveals how COM+ really works, as well as how to make COM+ components work with the upcoming Microsoft .NET architecture.
The importance of a book like COM+ Programming with Visual Basic lies in the fact that the Visual Basic programming environment is designed to hide as many low-level system details as possible. While this approach can speed development time by letting you focus on the task at hand, it actually hinders the process when it obscures details you need to understand or control. Such is often the case for programmers who are developing components that take advantage of COM+ services. COM+ Programming with Visual Basic takes aim squarely at the information needs of these developers. For instance, despite the marketing hype about COM+ as the new and improved version of COM, classic COM is very much the foundation on which COM+ is built: COM+ components are a particular kind of COM component. Visual Basic hides almost all COM implementation details; yet it is precisely in the area of COM+ programming that these hidden details are most important. Therefore, we've devoted significant content to exploring COM internals: Interface-based programming How COM interfaces work internally How COM components are activated How versioning COM components works in Visual Basic How to use interfaces Passing objects by reference or by value What it means to have multithreaded applications How declarative programming works How to program within a distributed transaction How to add role-based security to applications The second section focuses on incorporating individual COM+ services, like transaction support, security, and asynchronous operations, into applications. The author concludes by discussing what you need to learn to transition to Microsoft's coming .NET framework. Regardless of what lies ahead for .NET, many distributed systems are being built today with COM+. COM+ Programming with Visual Basic focuses on topics relevant to distributed applications that are here to stay: There's simply no other documentation available for much of what's in COM+ Programming with Visual Basic. It's destined to be the resource behind the most robust, efficient, high-performance COM+ applications.
