A name reserved by the MS-DOS operating system for serial communications ports. For example, if a modem is connected to one serial port and a serial printer to another, the devices are identified as COM1 and COM2 by the operating system. 2. Acronym for Component Object Model. A specification developed by Microsoft for building software components that can be assembled into programs or add functionality to existing programs running on Microsoft Windows platforms. COM components can be written in a variety of languages, although most are written in C++, and can be unplugged from a program at run time without having to recompile the program. COM is the foundation of the OLE (object linking and embedding), ActiveX, and DirectX specifications. The extension reserved by MS-DOS for a type of executable binary (program) file limited to a single 64-kilobyte (KB) segment. COM files are often used for utility programs and short routines. They are not supported in OS/2. 4. Acronym for computer-output microfilm. Microfilm that can record data from a computer.

Component Object Model. An object-based programming model designed to promote software interoperability; it allows two or more applications or components to easily cooperate with one another, even if they were written by different vendors, at different times, in different programming languages, or if they are running on different computers running different operating systems. COM is the foundation technology upon which broader technologies can be built. Object linking and embedding (OLE) technology and ActiveX are both built on top of COM.

(pronounced 'dot com'). 'Dot com' refers to the practice of (originally) commercial US websites indicating their nature within their web address with this suffix (www.microsoft.com, for example). The practice in the UK was often a '.co.uk' suffix. 'Dot com' has entered popular vocabulary as an indicator of internet presence (of a company or organisation) or of web activity in general. See Domain, URL and WWW.
Component Object Model. Allows applications and components to interact with each other. A bit like a DLL but doesn't require everything to be written in the same language.

Provides an enterprise development environment, based on the Microsoft component object model (COM), for creating component-based, distributed applications.
is Component Object Model. Although often associated with Microsoft, COM is an open standard that specifies how components work together and interoperate. Microsoft used COM as the basis for ActiveX and OLE. The use of the COM API ensures that a software object can be launched within your application using a wide variety of programming languages including Visual Basic. Components save a programmer from having to re-write code. A component can be large or small and can perform any kind of processing, but it must be re-usable and it must conform to set standards to for interoperability.
Component Object Model. A language-independent, system-level object model that provides a standard way for components and applications to interoperate.
Component Object Model – A Microsoft developed object-oriented system for creating binary software components that can interact. COM is the foundation technology for Microsoft's OLE (compound documents), ActiveX® (Internet-enabled components), as well as others.
The name of COM when you combine it with Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS), and Distributed COM (DCOM). COM+ provides a set of middle-tier-oriented services. In particular, COM+ provides process management and database and object connection pooling.
Component Object Model, Microsoft's framework for object-oriented programming, and the basis for ActiveX.
Component Object Model. Microsoft's specification for the building of modular, object-oriented software components. Each COM component has a unique, global identifier called a CLSID. ActiveX controls are a type of COM component.
Common Object Model.
Component Object Model. Microsoft's specification for developing objects. COM is a language-neutral binary interface specification for Windows objects and a set of run-time functions for instantiating them. With COM, it is possible to build an object using one language, and use that object in another language. Both OLE and ActiveX were developed using COM. See also COM/DCOM Client.
