Name and explain the different compatibility types when creating a COM component
No Compatibility ? New GUID created, references from other components will not workProject Compatibility ? Default for a new component Binary Compatibility ? GUID does not change, references fromother components will work
Why is it important to use source control software for source code?
Modification history.Code ownership: Multiple people can not modify the same code at the same time.

SetComplete and SetAbort.
What is the tool used to configure the port range and protocols for DCOM communications?
What does Option Explicit refer to?

Name the four different cursor types in ADO and describe them briefly.
The cursor types are listed from least to most resource intensive.Forward Only Fastest, can only move forward in recordset Static Can move to any record in the recordset. Data is static and never changes.KeySet Changes are detectable, records that are deleted by other users are unavailable, and records created by other users are not detectedDynamic ? All changes are visible.
Name the four different locking type in ADO and describe them briefly.
LockPessimistic Locks the row once after any edits occur.LockOptimistic Locks the row only when Update is called.LockBatchOptimistic Allows Batch Updates.LockReadOnly Read only. Can not alter the data.
Describe Database Connection pooling (relative to MTS )?
This allows MTS to reuse database connections. Database connections are put to sleep as opposed to being created and destroyed and are activated upon request.
What are the ADO objects?
Provide a scenario using three of them to return data from a database. Expected answer: Connection Connects to a data source; contains the Errors collectionCommand Executes commands to the data source. Is the only object that can accept parameters for a stored procedure.Recordset The set of data returned from the database.Scenario: There are many possibilities. The most likely is as follows:Dim conn As ADODB.ConnectionDim rs As ADODB.RecordsetDim Cmd As ADODB.Commandconn.ConnectionString = ?CONNECTION STRING?conn.OpenSet Cmd.ActiveConnection = connCmd.CommandText = ?SQL STATEMENT?Set rs = Cmd.ExecuteSet rs.ActiveConnection = Nothingconn.Close
Under the ADO Command Object, what collection is responsible for input to stored procedures?
What is the benefit of wrapping database calls into MTS transactions?
If database calls are made within the context of a transaction, aborting the transaction will undo and changes that occur within that transaction. This removes the possibility of stranded, or partial data.
Describe and In Process vs. Out of Process component. Which is faster?
An in-process component is implemented as a DLL, and runs in the same process space as its client app, enabling the most efficient communication between client and component.Each client app that uses the component starts a new instance of it.An out of process component is implemented as an EXE, and unlike a dll, runs in its own process space. As a result, exe’s are slower then dll’s because communications between client and component must be marshalled across process boundaries. A single instance of an out of process component can service many clients.
What are the main components of the ADO object model? How are they used?
Connection: Used to make a connection between your app and an external data source, ie, sql server.Command: Used to build queries, including user-specific parameters, to access records from a data source (which are returned in a Recordset)Recordset:Used to access records returned from an SQL query. With a recordset, you can navigate returned records. You can also add, modify or delete records.

Handling Error in Calling chain.
This will call the top most error where the error is handled.
In project properties if we set Unattended what is it mean?
This cannot have user interface. This can be used for the COM creation.
What is the size of the variant data type?
