4.5 Summary

In this chapter, we've touched on many aspects of component-oriented programming, including deployment strategies, distributed computing, and enterprise services such as transaction management, object pooling, role-based security, and message queuing. We have to give due credit to Microsoft for making componentization easier in the .NET Framework. Case in point: without .NET, it would be impossible for us to show the complete code for all of these programs in a single chapter of a book.[14]
