DCOM is now open code
Hi, Sometime ago we got arguments on this list about DCOM as a Microsoft proprietary soft. On January 25th, the Open Source finally announced that now the code for platforms other than Windows (Solaris, Digital Unix, etc...)is now available. Code snapshot (i.e. binaries) is free, source code is available with a fee for Open Source non members and free for Open Source members. Hope this will close the subject about DCOM as being a proprietary format and that now W3C will also include a DCOM IDL example for the DOM. We may have to implement a DOM implementation based on DCOM on the Linux platform, who knows :-). I don't know however if a MIDL compiler (i.e. an IDL to a language mapper) is included in the kit. I have a Solaris just beside me, so I'll check the package to see if a MIDL compiler is included in the kit and give it a try on Sunny (my Solaris machine :-) For incredulous, go see by yourself at: http://www.opengroup.org Open Source is an institution like W3C with membership based on a fee.
