COMERA: COM Extensible Remoting Architecture

Yi-Min Wang, Microsoft Research

In a distributed object system, remoting architecture refers to the infrastructure that allows client programs to invoke methods on remote server objects in a transparent way. In this paper, we study the strength and limitations of current remoting architecture of COM (Component Object Model), and propose a new architecture called COMERA (COM Extensible Remoting Architecture) to enhance the extensibility and flexibility. We describe several application scenarios and implementations to demonstrate the power of such a componentized remoting architecture.
