Note 1:

This certification covers the designing and implementation of Win32 desktop application solutions by using Microsoft Visual Basic version 6.0  

'Win32 Desktop Applications are applications that are run by a single user on a single computer that runs Microsoft Windows. These applications reside on the hard drive of the user's computer and use local COM components. These applications can employ a two-tier architecture that uses remote data.'



Note 2:

This certification covers designing and implementation of distributed application solutions by using Microsoft Visual Basic version 6.0.

'Distributed Applications are client/server applications that use a network in a multi-tier architecture to distribute their presentation services, business logic, and data services. These applications often access many different data sources. The COM components contained in these applications typically participate in transactions, and they can be shared by multiple users and multiple applications.'



Note 3

This certification provides the knowledge to analyze business requirements in a given scenario and then define technical solution architectures that will optimize business results by using Microsoft development tools.




Object Oriented Programming (OOP) - A class of programming language and techniques based on the concept of an "object" that is a data structure (abstract data type) encapsulated with a set of routines, called "methods," which operate on the data. Operations on the data can only be performed using these methods, which are common to all objects that are instances of a particular class. Thus the interface to objects is well defined, and allows the code implementing the methods to be changed, as long as the interface remains the same.     Back

Client/Server applications are the intelligent distribution of tasks between different applications and/or computers.     Back

Component Object Model is intended to allow you to pull pieces of precompiled programming code from different sources and make them work as services within another application.     Back

Visual Basic is an object orientated programming language that uses visual objects to aid in the programming process. The 'Visual' part: Since the introduction of the GUI (Graphical User Interface) programming languages have used the visual aspect to aid in the production of a program. The 'Basic' part of Visual Basic is the use of an older language, called 'Basic' that is more human language orientated than simply 0's and 1's.     Back
