The Active Template Library (ATL) is a set of small, efficient, and flexible classes created by Microsoft that facilitate the creation of interoperable components for developing Windows applications. The latest version of ATL is version 8, released with Visual Studio 2005. While .NET has been getting all the attention recently, there is still a huge base of installed COM/ATL code. Many programmers are dealing with difficult issues adding new .NET code to that installed base. At the same time there are many instances where ATL is still the superior choice for new applications - applications that have to run fast and efficiently on Windows, where the CPU doesn't have the memory or bandwidth to run .NET. This book will be a godsend to developers in both of those situations. As one tech reviewer put it, "Any programmer needing to transition ATL code to .NET will need this book." The first edition was widely praised, and sold close to 20,000 units. While ATL is no longer the cutting edge of Microsoft developer tools, there should still be a strong market for authoritative, complete, deep coverage of the newest version of this standard tool.

The Classic Guide to ATL–Now Updated for ATL 8 and Visual Studio 2005
Four leading Windows programming experts systematically reveal ATL’s inner workings, explaining not just how ATL works, but why it works the way it does. Client-side developers will master ATL’s resources for windowing, COM control, MFC integration, web service proxy generation, and more. Server-side programmers will discover ATL’s full COM server and object services, and its extensive support for high-throughput, high-concurrency web applications, and services. Every Windows developer will learn powerful ways to increase flexibility, reduce overhead, and maximize transparency and control.
• Discover ATL’s internals through diagrams, example code, and internal ATL implementation code
• Walk through wizards that simplify ATL usage in common applications
• Master string handling in C++, COM, and ATL
• Leverage ATL smart types, including CComPtr, CComQIPtr, CComBSTR, and CComVariant
• Understand and choose the right options for implementing IUnknown
• Create glue code that exposes COM objects from COM servers
• Use canned interface implementations to support object persistence, COM
collections, enumerators, and connection points
• Build standalone applications and UI components with ATL window classes
• Use ATL Server to develop web applications that run on Microsoft IIS
