Component Object Model Technologies
Windows is one of the most widely used OS system across the globe. With the bulk of the market under
its belt, Microsoft has built an ecosystem which has helped developers as well as users utilize the
power of windows. There have been many technologies offered by Microsoft in that aspect that have
helped developers create impeccable applications for the platform.
Microsoft COM (Component Object Model) technology in the Microsoft Windows-family of Operating Systems is used by developers to create re-usable software components, link components together to build applications, and take advantage of Windows services. The family of COM technologies includes COM+, Distributed COM (DCOM) and Active X® Controls and enables software components to communicate with each other.
We at A-1 Technology are a certified Gold partner of Microsoft and have been closely affiliated with the company undertaking many projects. Our Developers as well as programmers are well versed in Microsoft technologies and have worked on various project helping our clients to create applications using COM.
Our team comprises of specialists of COM technology enabling the clients to take maximum benefit in COM. Each version of Windows has a support policy described in the Windows Product Life cycle. COM continues to be supported as part of Windows. Microsoft provides COM interfaces for many Windows application services such as Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Windows Management and Instrumentation (WMI). Microsoft recommends that developers use the .NET Framework rather than COM for new development.
The term COM is often used in the software development world as an umbrella term that encompasses the OLE OLE Automation, Active X, COM+, and DCOM (Distributed COM) technologies. Right from the start of the project, our programmers adhere to our proven methodology and laid down protocols along with robust Microsoft technologies to create performance enrich applications. We have been using COM as well as DCOM (Distributed Component Object Model) to extend the components of windows architecture over network, giving the benefits of distributed computing.
COM and DCOM are highly versatile technologies that have become the model for code and service-reuse over the web world. Although there are some difficulties involved in getting either of these technologies to work over internet firewalls and on unknown and insecure machines, that normal HTTP requests in combination with web browsers makes for a seamless integration.
In addition to COM and DCOM another technology that we have been using for a longer period of time is COM+. It is the name of the COM-based services and technologies first released in Windows 2000. COM+ brought together the technology of COM components and the application host of Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS). COM+ automatically handles difficult programming tasks such as resource pooling, disconnected applications, event publication and subscription and distributed transactions.
We at A-1 Technology have been working with many organizations providing them windows based solutions for more than a decade. We have an extensive team of highly qualified and certified experts that implement COM and DCOM solutions along with other Microsoft technologies. Our low cost customization Windows solution are well equipped to work on any scale and size. Over the years, we have worked with many organizations to enhance their capabilities which have lead to faster and more informed decision making. COM+ is intended to provide a model that makes it relatively easy to create business applications that work well with the Microsoft Microsoft Transaction Server in Windows NT or subsequent system.
