Harness the power of .NET Remoting to build complex and secure distributed applications

Microsoft’s .NET Remoting takes building distributed applications to the next level. This innovative book, written by Microsoft insider David Conger, gets you up and running with .NET Remoting – fast. Starting with the basics of .NET technologies and tools as well as a simple client/server program, you’ll learn how to exchange data across networks and communicate with remote objects and other distributed systems. You’ll also learn how to securely deploy remote objects and client programs on networks, and then across the Internet as Web services. Finally, Conger demonstrates how you can extend and enhance the capabilities of the .NET Remoting system in order to use it to its full potential.

Using a comprehensible step-by-step approach and numerous C# code examples, this book will show you how to use .NET Remoting to:

  • Build multi-tiered applications that can interoperate with components written in different languages
  • Use remote objects as Web services to provide secure access to corporate applications
  • Manage the "lifetime" of remote objects by controlling and maintaining their state
  • Add custom security measures to distributed applications
  • Execute asynchronous calls across networks

The companion Web site contains all the source code and executables from the book.
