Get a detailed, in-depth look at the Microsoft Windows Distributed Internet Architecture (DNA) with this dynamic new book. Focusing on Internet and intranet technologies utilizing the Component Object Model (COM) and Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) as a development platform, it helps you understand how all parts of DNA fit together and how they can be used to build successful, robust distributed applications. Here's your guide to building DNA applications of less complexity and greater scalability, resulting in increased productivity, better performance, and reduced problem-solving time. The technologies examined in Global Distributed Applications With Window DNA are here to stay, and this book presents DNA from a web development perspective, ideal for development teams looking for global solutions. This book helps you understand the value of interoperable and reusable components, the difference between standard client/server distributed applications and Windows DNA applications, the issue of multiple relationships and interactions among DNA components and why it is important to manage these interactions, and the design changes required to construct successful DNA applications. An important element of Global Distributed Applications With Windows DNA is its examination of how software development and software project management must change to accommodate requirements of DNA architecture. This book bridges the gap between technical development and project management, giving designers a new development model and project managers the understanding needed to effectively direct the work.
