VS.Net is a tool (Visual Studio 7). They may throw in
their up and coming COM library under the VS.Net name,
but that will be seen.
Ada using GNATCOM can make use of the COM library with
The issue here was to integrate Ada awareness, tools,
etc. in to Visual Studio 7 (aka VS.Net). MS has a COM
based API for doing this, but it is not released
except to Visual Studio.Net partners that pay big
bucks. A subset is according to them going to be
released with the product to allow some integration
from non "partners".
I have not seen anything that would indicate that MS's
COM library if and when it will be released will
infact offer any more then there current objects offer
(XML, ADO, CDO - Active Messaging, etc.)
For example, COM+ just means COM/DCOM + MSMQ + MTS.
