Amazon.de

The Component Object Model (COM) is deep and extremely difficult, making it impossible to grasp the ideas behind this specification quickly or easily. Don Box, the author of Essential COM concedes that it took him six months of reading documentation, writing programs, and experiencing general puzzlement before he had his personal COM epiphany. Nonetheless, if you're a C++ programmer and you want your skills to continue to be relevant in a PC market dominated by Windows 95 and Windows NT, you need to get going down the path toward your own COM enlightenment. COM is the tool of choice for creating distributed and concurrent systems for modern Microsoft operating systems. If there's a book that will help you get a handle on the COM phenomenon, Essential COM is it.

Endorsed by object-orientation guru Grady Booch and Microsoft COM expert Charlie Kindel, Box's book takes the reader from an elucidating discussion of why a demand exists for COM and how it fits into the progression of C++ technology to a cool exhibition of some COM programs he's written. Along the way, Box covers the four corners of COM interfaces, classes, apartments, and security--all explained in developer's detail. He also gives attention to access control, marshaling, and Distributed COM (DCOM). Essential COM isn't an application programming interface (API) reference; it is an exploration of the Tao of COM. As the author says in his preface, you will figure out the how of COM programming quickly, as soon as you grasp the why.

Synopsis

Written by a leading COM authority, this unique book reveals the essence of COM, helping developers to truly understand the why, not just the how, of COM. Understanding the motivation for the design of COM and its distributed aspects is critical for developers who wish to go beyond simplistic applications of COM and become truly effective COM programmers, and to stay current with extensions, such as Microsoft Transaction Server and COM+. Box examines COM from the perspective of a C++ developer, offering a familiar frame of reference to ease you into the topic.

This book <CANNOT> be understood unless you know Standard C++ fluently cold. Almost every piece of implementation block instructions in the book require a commanding understanding of templates and the Run Time Type Identification language features. There are a lot of COM books at the book stores like Dale Rogerson's Inside COM, which is more of a simpleton tutorial, now I had that book but for some reason I felt that the explanations of that book where too Sesame Street. Rogerson's book is good and I do not want to bash it but with Essential COM this book makes wanting to read any other book on COM wasted time, and as you would learn C++ from Stroustrup, the definitively reliable source, the same courtesy is applied to Don Box. You awkwardly feel safe and secure with the teachings of Box. The training that this book gives you is unbelievably detailed and presise, giving you a certain arrogance and swagger upon the books completion, because as he states it a C++ COM programmer is the smartest and most skillfull programmer in the developers circle. Don Box Essential COM is also a tutorial contrary to belief, but because it is exhaustively detailed, it also serves as keyboard side COM reference without the cold and dry syntax of most reference manuals. This book is classic and worth every penny. The mentality to spend on this book is what will the ramifications be once I really understand the COM model, and program in it effectively? Can you say humongous pay raise? How about jolting you marketability as a developer ten fold? It definitely has its place as tutorial but Don Box's book explains how COM can be used as a better C++. How is that?Lesen Sie weiter... ›

I bought and read this book about 16 months ago.
I've re-read it twice since then. This is not because I didnt understand the book the first time -- its because there are so many layers of information in the book.
Some authors seem to be able to write 20 books on a subject -- You've seen the authors that do 3 C++ books a year, or 3 COM books a year. This is great for publishers, and the successful "serial author". (I am aware that Stroustrup has 2 other C++ books and Don has taken part in Effective COM -- but they're not on the same subject material)
Don takes a different approach. He's only going to write one COM book and do it properly. He does. This book is the most dense in terms of giving solid information to help you understand whats going on. Whats going on when your product is about to ship and there's only 3 "showstopper" bugs left. Thats when understanding it properly matters. It also matters when you want to design something. These details also matter to VB projects when they ship, or when they're being designed.
I generally read any COM book I see sitting around. So I've probably read about 6000 pages on COM. I've seen about 1000 wizard screenshots. I've seen 40 analogy-riddled COM explanations. I've seen "cute and funny" examples. This is the only one I've bought and I've never regretted it or covetted my neighbour's book.
Similarly with C++ books, there are authors who sell a rehash of the same material 20 times. I read any of these lying about too -- another 10,000 pages with 50 useful per book. I only _bought_ Stroustrup.
It's not (nor was it intended to be) _the_ tutorial. It doesnt have screenshots. Its not 'funny'.

You've read a lot, you've built the samples, you've used the wizards, you can actually turn out components in C++, VB and maybe even Java, but you still secretly ask questions like "OK, but WHAT IS this so-called Apartment? WHERE is it?", or "so how does *IT* notice its reference count is zero?", or "WHO keeps track of threading models?". It that's the case, you have a nasty habit of wanting the world to make sense, and Essential Com is for you. Well-organized, with clear lucid prose, a sort of man to man discussion of the reasoning and the detailed implementation issues *behind* the wizards and templates. While rich in C++ code, this is not a paint by numbers cookbook, e.g. MFC and ATL are hardly mentioned. Get that elsewhere and come back here when you have gotten "productive" and want a crack at actually understanding what you're doing. This book is one of the current masterpieces, and you will read it cover to cover. In addition, it's reasonably priced and the pastel color scheme of the cover blends nicely with most bathrooms.

Some woodworkers are content to read books on "100 router tricks" and "50 cool projects you can build with your table saw". Those who would be masters of the craft read books on how to select wood for a particular purpose, or when to use a particular type of join, or how to design a piece of furniture for a specific purpose.
There are dozens of COM books of the first type. There's only one of the second. This is it.
There are a lot of books that will tell you how to develop COM applications. Most of them are aimed at the journeyman programmer who is capable of following directions and making small extensions to cookie-cutter sample apps. They serve this need quite well. Don's book isn't aimed at that sort of person, and doesn't fill that need.
If you need to understand why COM looks the way it does, or how COM grew, or what its underlying philosophies are, or if you need to deeply understand the whole COM paradigm, Essential COM contains the answers.
COM is full of jargon; terms that convey only a small amount of information themselves. The richness of an object model relies upon the abstractions that serve as its foundation; if you don't understand the abstractions, you can't really apply the model creatively.
Sure, the sample code gets pretty deep, and does so rather quickly. Take the time read the samples, and understand them; consider them "exercises for the reader". There is much to be learned from them.
Yeah, the macros get deep, too. COM is layer upon layer of abstraction; the implementation is layer upon layer of code. Macros help flatten that out; they keep the programming level of abstraction high enough that one can see a forest rather than an endless collection of trees.
