Define and explain COM? ..

Answer / riddhi

COM is a specification of how to build the components that
link with each other dynamically. It provides the standard
that the component should follow to ensure that they
operate with each other.
Benefits of COM
1) Language Independence: components can be written in any
language and can link with the other component written in
different language. So the component doesnt become obselete
as new prog languages evolve
2)Customizing applications: application is no longer static
entity since new modules can be easily added or existing
can be modified.
3)Distributed Applications: Its easier with COM as
applications is already fragmented in components. component
can be replaced by the remote component on local m/c that
fwd request over n/w to actual component.
