Windows DNA

Namespace: WIN_COM_API
Windows DNA architecture, as defined in Designing Component - based Applications, is the Microsoft approach for writing distributed applications.

DNA stands for Distributed internet Applications.

Windows DNA is a framework for building three-tier, component-based applications that can be delivered over any network. The goal of Windows DNA is to unify PC, Client Server, and Web-based applications around this common application architecture, which is suitable for applications of any size.

The heart of Windows DNA is Com Architecture since all services are exposed via COM interfaces.

Windows DNA is not a product, it is a strategy or a road map if you will for writing apps that use M$ technologies and products. See for detailed info.
