COM technologies include COM+, DCOM, and ActiveX Controls.

COM+ Event System

The COM+ Event System service matches and connects publishers and subscribers through a loosely coupled events system. A publisher makes the method call to initiate an event, and a subscriber receives these calls through the event system rather than directly from the publisher. The COM+ Event System service maintains the list of interested subscribers who receive the calls, and it directs those calls without requiring the knowledge of the publisher.
