Visual Basic is the leading Windows development tool with 3-4 million licenses sold.
Many VB developers face the challenge of building scalable applications using distributed COM objects in Visual Basic 6. There are many books which describe n-tier architecture and also object-oriented programming, but this book is about merging the best capabilities of the Object-Oriented (OO) approach with your system architecture. It does this with Rocky Lhotka's 'distributed object' technique.

Professional Visual Basic 6 Distributed Objects is an intelligent guide to component design for anyone who builds Visual Basic (VB) components. This is an authoritative guide to creating state-of-the-art scalable distributed components with Visual Basic 6, and it takes full advantage of the Microsoft Distributed interNet Architecture (DNA) platform.
The heart of this text is the author's design philosophy for building distributed components with VB, which he calls his Component-based Scalable Logical Architecture (CSLA). The author shows how to design objects that take full advantage of some of the latest Microsoft features and tools. (The examples in this book use objects for a project manager application, which are enhanced chapter by chapter.)
By following the prescription outlined here, VB developers can create scalable objects that support transactions (with MTS), data binding (with OLE DB and ADO), and even message-based event delivery across multiple servers on the enterprise (with MSMQ). The author also shows how the same objects can be used with ASPs on the Web. Clearly, the CSLA has a lot of potential for building objects that scale well and meet the needs of today's enterprise.
Professional Visual Basic 6 Distributed Objects is written in a no-nonsense style, with short paragraphs and practical examples used throughout. The author's experience with design for VB enterprise-level lets him show that today's Visual Basic is ready to take on the enterprise on the Microsoft platform. For enterprise development, both on and off the Web, this guide makes a strong pitch for a spot on the bookshelf of anyone serious about VB development. --Richard DraganAbout the Author:
Rockford Lhotka has over 10 years experience in software development. He worked in Pascal, FORTRAN and Basic on VAX/VMS computers for a number of years until Windows NT and Visual Basic 1.0 first became available. Rockford has worked on many projects in various roles, including software development and design, network administration, help desk management and project management.
With the release of Visual Basic 4.0, Rockford began designing and developing n-tier client/server systems using component-based technology and has been doing so ever since. Rockford has been involved in the design and development of a number of successful, enterprise-level, applications based on the techniques discussed in this book.
In addition to designing and writing software, Rockford is an avid proponent of component-oriented design using Visual Basic and COM. He regularly speaks on these topics, as well as evangelizing the concepts to friends, coworkers and clients.
