Best Practices for Middle Tier Components - Speaker: Craig Berntson

Martin Fowler states that the middle tier is, "Logic that is the real point of the system". It has long been a best practice that the design for a data-centric application is “Three-Tier” where the User Interface is one tier, and the database is another. But what, exactly, is the third tier? In this session, Craig begins by exploring what is exactly meant by the "middle tier", what goes into it, and how we should design it.

The second part of the session focuses on using Visual FoxPro to implement the middle tier of multi-tier, data-centric, applications. Craig shows how, with a little planning and by creating a VFP COM+ compliant DLL you can create middle tier components that work within a native VFP application, can support a LAN-based application written in some other language that can access COM, and also support a Web application – all with a single Visual FoxPro code base.
