  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008
  • Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0


Formerly called Internet Information Server – is a web server application and set of feature extension modules created by Microsoft for use with Microsoft Windows. IIS 7.5 supports HTTPHTTPSFTPFTPS,SMTP and NNTP. It is an integral part of Windows Server family of products, as well as certain editions of Windows XP,Windows Vista and Windows 7. IIS is not turned on by default when Windows is installed.


Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) was software that provided services to Component Object Model (COM) software components, to make it easier to create large distributed applications. The major services provided by MTS were  automated transaction management, instance management (or just-in-time activation) and role-based security. MTS is considered to be the first major software to implement aspect-oriented programming

Microsoft SQL Server 2008:

This database product, rather than Microsoft Access, was chosen since it's a great product for use in building both small, but scalable, solutions and in the development of large distributed applications, like an e-commerce site. We use this database both for development and on the production server.

Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0

This will be used for building our business objects for the business tier of our application.
