Visual Basic Design Patterns for Windows DNA using UML
Convention Ctr – 205C
Chris Armstrong, Armstrong Consulting

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 is one of the best environments for rapidly building distributed applications using Microsoft Windows Distributed interNet Applications Architecture (DNA). Windows DNA is a collection of technologies built into Windows 2000 for building and deploying Web-based applications. Using Visual Basic, effective design patterns have emerged for building flexible and well-performing distributed applications. Using COM, MTS, and SQL Server 7.0, patterns involving emissaries (using iterators and support classes) and executants (to manage transactions and invoke stored procedures) are the recommended approach for implementing business services. The speaker will present UML design patterns for modeling multi-tiered architecture applications written in Visual Basic using Windows DNA.

Presentation Format: This tutorial will be presentation based.

Attendee Background: Participants should have a general familiarity with visual modeling and the UML.
