COM+ Programming:
With it being so fashionable to write about the beta .NET framework - books that will be out of date soon after they are published - it is nice to see a book about an established product, and one that has a lengthy future. I am talking about COM+ of course, the .NET framework relies on COM+ for its component services and will do in the future. So it makes sense to learn about COM+ because you can use it now with Windows 2000 and you will use it in the future when .NET is released. More Details...

Channel managers will be ensuring that the content in each section is as up to date and as interesting as possible. If you would be interested in joining in, please contact us at [email protected].

We have five main channels - COM(+), XML/XSL, ASP, Java and ATR (All The Rest!). There is also the International Zone for all developers wanting to share resources and whose first language is not English. Then there's Author Central. All contributors will have their own site within Author Central to promote themselves, their knowledge and their products/services.
