Full Description

With all the attention paid recently to Web services, many developers dont realize that the true successor to DCOM is actually .NET Remoting. And what an improvement it is!

Advanced .NET Remoting in VB .NET is the Visual Basic edition of Ingo Rammer's bestselling Advanced .NET Remoting (C# edition). This book offers in-depth coverage of the .NET Remoting Framework in Visual Basic .NET. The first part of the book covers everything you as a developer need to know to use the framework and its capabilities in real-world applications, including the basics of server-activated objects versus client-activated objects, formatters, channels, lifetime issues, security, configuration files, and more. The server-side hosting of remotable components in console applications, Windows Services, and IIS are also covered.

The second part presents .NET Remoting internals, and Rammer shows how the framework really uses message sinks and sink providers, and gives in-depth advice on why and how to implement message and channel sinks. These chapters also provide detailed insight into the synchronous and asynchronous message processing within the framework. Rammer goes far beyond Microsofts documentation in explaining how .NET Remoting really works and how it can be extendedessential information for advanced developers.

Rammer also presents the development process and source code for several real-world message sinks. He concludes with coverage of the ContextBoundObject class and .NET contexts, which allow the use of the techniques of the .NET Remoting Framework within individual, client-only applications.
