Why are books on COM+ so large?
Thanks for the info David K.
I guess that makes .NET = COM + MTS + XML + SOAP
From what I gather at the Microsoft .NET video archive, that is. It seems
like Microsoft is just repackaging previous technologies into one super technology;
primarily, to make the programmers job easier and to reduce development time.
I only wish that I knew how to program in any of these languages. The books
on COM and COM+ seem like monstrosities for such a simple "in theory" type
of object programming for sending data over the internet.

Two good books on COM that I've read are _Inside COM_ by Rogerson, and the
COM chapters in _Programming Visual C++ 6_ by Kruglinski et. al. The first
discuss the COM from a very low-level perspective, while the latter discusses
COM with respect to the MFC and ATL frameworks.
Also, if you are more of a VB person, you can check out Dan Appleman's COM
book for VB (I can't remember the exact title off the top of my head). I
have read only a few of the chapters of it, but it seems like a very comprehensive
COM reference from a VB perspective.
