Dim ocaEmployeeMaintenance As caEmployeeMaintenance Dim ocRecordset As cRecordset Set ocRecordset = New cRecordset Set ocaEmployeeMaintenance = _ New caEmployeeMaintenance ' Open Employee action object ocRecordset.Serialize = _ caEmployeeMaintenance.GetCurrentEmployees.Serialize Set ocaEmployeeMaintenance = Nothing ' Do stuff with local ocRecordset in user interface ' ... Set ocaEmployeeMaintenance = New caEmployeeMaintenance ocaEmployeeMaintenace.UpdateEmployees ocRecordset Set ocaEmployeeMaintenance = Nothing
This code could be in a Visual Basic form, in an Active Server Page, or even in an ActiveX document-the important thing is that the client reference to the action object is as quick as possible. The recordset maintains the data locally until the time comes to the send the data back to the action object.
So there you have it, a workable approach to implementing high-performance distributed objects. With the right amount of planning and design, an awareness of distributed application issues, and the power of Visual Basic, building powerful, scalable software solutions is well within your reach.
So get out there and code those business objects!
