Accessing another .NET app


when I automate an Office App I can access it by using GetObject (COM). Now
I have my own small .NET app and I want to access this from my other .NET
app. What the best way to do this?

Thanks for any advice in advance

Office apps are ActiveX servers. That's a COM-based technology. In the
..NET world you'll want to check out .NET Remoting or Enterprise
Services. Depending on your release timeframe and project scope you
also will want to evaluate the new Windows Communications Framework
(WCF, formerly code-named Indigo) which is the next generation of that
and currently in technology preview. It is a very different API from
Remoting, which will be deprecated by it.

I did a suite of .NET Remoting server and client apps a couple of years
ago using binary formatter and TCP/IP transport ... it worked like a
champ. I am now a little peeved that this technology has already been
obsoleted; however, although rather cranky to get initially configured,
it works fine and is easy to maintain. Also, support will continue to
be there in the framework for the foreseeable future so I guess it's not
a disaster.
