Out Process COM Server using Delphi 4 ????
Posted on 1999-09-30
I am currently working on an out process com server using delphi. This
out process com server has a set of interfaces, with no co classes.
There is one main interface 'Imain' through which the other interfaces
can be obtained. The com client that uses this com server will be using
just one Imain interface to talk to the com server. This Imain interface has to be obtained from the com server which will be internally
instantiating the object and then providing the interface to the com client.
The problem is that I just can't find a way to do this. I.e.
instantiating the object within the com server and then passing on the
interface to the com client.
One good example of this situation would be that suppose I am developing
microsoft word and when I am working with another application, I can
talk to microsoft word com server and set certain global properties like
activedocument, without having to instantiate microsoft word object
myself. The com server does it for me. I want the same kind of
functionality to be provided by my com server.
Any example code for the com server would be appreciated.
Please note that all my interface implementation classes are derived
