Visual FoxPro includes several samples, which focus on Automation Servers. An Automation server is a COM component application that exposes functionality that can be used and reused by other applications through Automation. In addition, you can create one or more classes to handle enterprise-wide business rules. A client application that uses the business rule object would pass input parameters in a method call, and the Automation server might then do a great deal of work, retrieving or storing data from various sources and performing complex calculations, before returning the answer.
