Bespoke software for all platforms

Bespoke Software Development - COM and DCOM

The StyleTech bespoke development team have been creating bespoke systems using COM since 1995 and DCOM since 2000.

The Component Object Model (COM) is an umbrella term that encompasses OLE, OLE Automation, ActiveX, COM+ and DCOM technologies. The Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) is a technology for communication between software components on networked computers. DCOM was originally called Network OLE and it has now been deprecated in favour of Microsoft .Net Remoting.

Microsoft introduced a technology called Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) to provide developers with support for distributed transactions, resource pooling, disconnected applications, event publication and subscription, better memory and processor (thread) management. Microsoft Transaction Server was later incorporated into the operating system and renamed COM+.

Today, many bespoke applications that were written using COM and DCOM still exist and operate. StyleTech can assist with the continued maintenance and development of these systems by:

  • Understanding the system codebase
  • Implementing any necessary bug fixes
  • Introducing modern security practices
  • Improving the responsiveness of the system
  • Upgrading the database engine
  • Implementing screen design improvements
  • Providing on-going system support
  • Providing on-going system development
  • Producing and implementing a disaster / recovery plan
