Thanks for the feedback, I like this list in particular:
> a.. Support for standard component services: transactions, object pooling,
> db connection pooling, just-in-time activation, etc.
> b.. Support for Message Queuing.
> c.. Eeeeeasy to manage, with a nice and colorful management console.
> d.. Support for clustering / load balancing
> e.. Fast and powerful component deployment system, with support for hot
> deployment, distributed deployment and good component version management.
> f.. Portable, of course.
My feeling is that implementing the COM+ features using C# and Mono
should not be too hard. We even looked at some of those in the pre-1.0
Bonobo days, but decided against it, as there were more pressing needs
Mono changes the picture a lot: it is now easier to implement servers,
it is easier to write code (compared to the C-based CORBA and
doubly-wrapped approach we had in Bonobo).
>From your list:
a. Is not only very interesting to hack on, but is also
likely very fun.
b. Again, fun to implement.
c. I will suggest for now `ASP.NET' as the GUI admin tool,
and later on a Gtk# based interface.
d. No comments. I think this can be easily done, and
is more of an integration with the underlying OS features.
e. Sounds like Mono to me ;-)
f. Mono ;-)
