Accesses the data that is stored in the COM+ catalog.
When to implement
This class is implemented by COM+.
When to use
You use objects created from the COMAdminCatalog class to begin programmatic access to COM+ configuration data stored in the COM+ catalog. This information underlies the folders and items in the console tree of the Component Services administration tool. The COMAdminCatalog class enables you to access collections in the catalog, install COM+ applications and components, start and stop services, and connect to and administer remote servers.
Folders in the Component Services administration tool correspond to collections in the catalog, which you can represent by using objects created from the COMAdminCatalogCollection class. Items in the folders correspond to items in the collections, which you can represent by using objects created from the COMAdminCatalogObject class.
For information regarding specific collections and their properties, see COM+ Administration Collections.
For an introduction to programmatic administration of COM+, see Automating COM+ Administration.
To create this object, call CoCreateInstance.
To use this class from Microsoft Visual Basic, add a reference to the COM+ Admin Type Library. A COMAdminCatalog object can be declared using "COMAdmin.COMAdminCatalog" as the class name.
In COM+ 1.5, released with Windows XP, the COMAdminCatalog class implements the ICOMAdminCatalog2 interface. However, in COM+ 1.0, released with Windows 2000, the COMAdminCatalog class implements only the ICOMAdminCatalog interface.
