You'll have to devise some sort of fancy way of doing it, since MTS requires stateless objects that don't interact.

You'd be fighting a far tamer battle to modify your objects to pass values back and forth as arguments to procedure calls.

Besides... hasn't someone jumped on you about global variables yet??? :)

You can use "Shared Property Manager" to use global data in MTS. This works almost like a "registry" but in RAM-memory.

Thank you, cywh for the answer.
What exactly i wanted to know is, is there any way i can use callback or event handling mechanism which is there in the DCOM.
Because i want to notify the appropriate client as soon as the information from one client is to be intemated to the other client.
I will give you the points. Let me know what you say about this.
Thanks in advance.

If I iterpret your question right you ask for som mechanism to notify the calling function or process whenever a asychronous question is asked? Hav I understood your question right?

If I understod the question the aswer might be MSMQ (Microsoft Message Que). I don't know of any better way to handle asynchronous transactions in the DCOM environment.

MSMQ ques up every transaction until it gets time from the OS to execute its task. If a computer on the network is "down" the transaction sent to that computer is also qued until the machine goes "up" again. This is actually a standard behaviour of all Message Que Systems.
