Hi,

i am looking for a good ATL teaching book. Which book is your favourite ?
The ATL book should be like "Inside COM" from D.Box
I would prefer a book which:

1.  puts the concepts in order  ( it should not be like a manual. i dont
think that a book about 1000 pages puts something in order )
2. describes the ATL architecture  ( this should show where to look first
and what is more a specialised thing )
3. describes what, how and why ( "what" pointing to the architecture, "how"
is code example, "why" this way and not another one )
4. describes internals ( it should not be a c++ beginners book )

The first point is the most important for me.
Anybody have suggestions ?

Best regards,
Grkan

Word of advice to the original post. "ATL Internals" is not likely what
you're looking for. It's widely considered the bible of ATL programming but
isn't a learner's guide for beginners. It reads more like an advanced
reference manual for the very experienced. It's indispensable IMO for any
serious ATL developer but isn't for the weak-hearted.

"Developer's Workshop to COM and ATL 3.0" (ISBN: 1556227043)  got 5 stars on
Amazon. I'm also looking for a good book, but since I'm a VB/JAVA programmer
I'm also learning C++ as I go. I'm starting with "C++ for VB Programmers"
(ISBN: 1893115763).  I'm half way through it and I'm not real happy with the
C++ part.  I'll be using Bjarne's book next for that part.

Another question I have is, will everything I learn for COM apply to COM+?
How about .NET?

Thanks!!
