COM Beyond Microsoft: Designing and Implementing COM Servers on Compaq Platforms

Terence Sherlock
OpenVMS Engineering

Gene Cronin
Tru64 UNIX Engineering

Drawing on Compaq's groundbreaking work of porting COM/DCOM to its OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX Alpha platforms, COM Beyond Microsoft explains how the COM standard can help enterprises integrate their applications across a heterogeneous computing environment. This book details the innovative COM support now native on Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS and reveals how developers can exploit COM on OpenVMS and COM on Tru64 UNIX to create portable software components that run virtually unchanged on OpenVMS, Tru64 UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and other major computing platforms.

COM Beyond Microsoft highlights the business and technical benefits of implementing distributed and portable COM applications, especially versus other strategies and technologies such as CORBA and Java. The book explains the APIs, utilities, libraries and run-time environments developers must understand to create COM applications for OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX. It also contains implementation and configuration techniques for running COM programs on Tru64 UNIX and OpenVMS.

The book include a CD-ROM that contains binary and source code for sample COM applications, as well as instructions for building and modifying the samples for your own use. COM Beyond Microsoft uniquely explains a controversial topic of major interest to organizations and developers in an enterprise computing context.
