ATL Server

Is anyone here familar with real applications implemented with ATL Server, Microsoft's C++ framework for building ISAPI apps?  Any wisdom or lessons learned to impart?

ATL 7.0 makes life a little easier. Do unit testing really really well--you'll pat yourself later.

When did ATL become an ISAPI framework? Hello, COM anybody?

Calling ATL a "framework for building ISAPIs" is sort of like calling your PC is a "room warmer". Well, yeah, it'll warm your room, but perhaps you could focus on the primary purpose? :)

Brad -- the question was about "ATL Server" not ATL, do a google on it and you will find that it is a framework for building ISAPI extensions.

Is MFC an ISAPI Framework, simply because it can be used to make an ISAPI extension?

Brad:

The question was asked about 'ATL Server'

Do a google for it...too lazy well then click below:
http://www.google.ca/search?q=ATL+Server&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&meta=

Since I don't believe you did the gogle, the first result is this:

Read the damn article and then tell us if 'ATL Server' is about ISAPI extensions or COM.

If I asked about MFC CDatabase, will you tell me that this is a GUI class?

Apparently Brad is more that willing to make noise about things he knows nothing about, but will not apologize once it is pointed out quite clearly that he has his head up his ass.
