    advice on ADO-->ADO.NET, COM/DCOM.....


    Hi There:


    I already have some experience on COM, Active X controls, and ADO programming,
    but not an expert.

    As most issues keep emphasizing, COM/DCOM will become legacy code after .NET
    release, and there will be huge difference between ADO and ADO.NET. I am
    wondering do I need to stop learning more on those current technologies,
    if migration issue is not a concern.

    Thanks!


    Jerry

    From what I can make out of the video archive at MS, your fears seem to eminate
    from being uninformed. IMHO, you only need to use the .Net platform if you
    are writing .Net applications. Otherwise, you can just look at .Net as a
    tool that is designed to increase programmer productivity yet again. If
    you are running a subscriber-based .Net type of application then you could
    do it more quickly using the .Net platform. The computers that that application
    converses with, it seems, only need to provide their data in an XML format;
    they do not also need to be running a .Net platform. I am only an amateur
    myself so don't quote me on any of this. It seemed in the MS videos that
    they were almost preaching apologetics on the interoperability of .Net with
    previous technologies.
