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
