Just wondering if anybody has any info (yours or a link to somebody else&#039;s) on how much work for how many users a component has to do before converting it to DCOM (thereby picking up network latency non-inclusive of a host of complexities) will benefit its performance.<BR><BR>This just seems like a very useful piece of information to have when our technology director -- who does no coding herself -- says she wants an N-Tier XML, OLEDB, .NET solution to the age old problem of "Hello World".<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>SPG
