Summary

This article provides a roadmap to learn and to master Microsoft .NET Enterprise Services. Roadmap articles provide links to useful information, including online documentation, Microsoft Knowledge Base articles, and Microsoft white papers, to help you learn about a Microsoft product or technology.

Overview

Microsoft COM+ provides a strong foundation to build component-based enterprise applications by using Microsoft Component Object Model (COM) objects. Microsoft .NET Enterprise Services is a feature that is included in the Microsoft .NET Framework. With .NET Enterprise Services, you can take advantage of COM+ features for .NET objects. Additionally, .NET Enterprise Services includes some new features for .NET components that are not available to COM components.

The process to develop Enterprise Services components (or serviced components) is similar to the process that you use to develop COM+ COM components. COM+ features are available to both processes, and these features work the same for both processes.

For more information about .NET serviced components, see the following Microsoft Web sites:
