  • Yes. COM can be used in .NET also to interoperate with programs written in old languages.

  • Well COM is an interaction model for different applications. You can use it in .NET but it all depends on how you implement your design. For Visual C++.NET, COM helps in minimizing the code bloat which is added if yu use MFC.

    But for Visual C#, inbuilt frameworks are good enough and you don't reqire to deal with COM direcctly most of the times.


    I think you understood the concept.

  • COM is an older one which doesn't support many functionalities in remoting or distributed environments.. Hence v go for DCOM.. This is Distributed COM..

    COM is Component Object Model.. This is what is used !
