COM+ Services

With Windows 2000 comes a new and improved version of COM, cleverly christened COM+. This new architecture provides developers with greater security features, better object pooling and a new threading model. It also bundles with COM+ Events, a method of 'raising events' through a network of publishers and subscribers. You can get further information on COM+ at www.microsoft.com/com/ or read the developer documentation here we'll also be listing appropriate COM+ reading on this site within the next few weeks.

Windows XP
