You really need to check out Java, and especially JavaBeans. Sun is in
trying to make JavaBeans do exactly what you describe, And, if you don't
the right Beans, you can go get the ones you need from anybody who will
give them or sell them to you, or program your own. You aren't stuck
with a single-vendor solution. Microsoft seems to see the threat, so
they are atempting to weasel out of their agreement to support Java.
