* Book: Professional DCOM Programming
Covers everything an experienced C++ programmer could want to know about DCOM, Microsoft's Distributed Component Object Model, including differences from COM, techniques for writing both DCOM clients and servers with proper security and multithreading.
Buy it TODAY from Amazon Worldwide/U.S.A. or U.K.
* A Survey of Object-Oriented Middleware
A paper by Dr. Wolfgang Emmerich describing a set of requirements for object-oriented middleware. The framework is then applied to compare OMG/CORBA, DCOM and Java/RMI.
* Jintegra COM-Java bridge
Jintegra is a commercial bi-directional COM-Java bridging tool allowing pure-Java programs to access ActiveX objects, and vise versa. Provides authenticated access to both local and remote ActiveX components using DCOM.
The product pricing scheme is clearly aimed at "Enterprise Applications" (!), but if you really need this functionality I guess that will not be a problem!
* Book: Essential COM
An excellent book on COM/DCOM programming by Don Box (one of the COM gurus), which will teach you not only how to use COM related technologies, but also how to "think in COM". Certainly not a "lightweight" read! but if you want a deep understanding of the machinery behind COM, including the gruesome details of interfaces, marshalling, authentication and security then this is probably the book you need.
