Should I use Microsoft ATL or WTL for client Com support?
Posted on 2014-12-08
It's been a while since I've worked in the world of COM.
I've got a basic Microsoft unmanaged C++ class with some methods I'd like to expose
through COM. There are no activex/ui associated with it; it's a straightforward simple class.
On the client side, I'm a little confused on to use to manage interfacing with the COM object.
Which template library to use: ATL or WTL?
I assume that they both have their own flavor of smart pointers.
Given a brief description of my needs, what is the correct way to go?
ATL or WTL?
