Services Without Components
COM+ services were developed to be used with components. Applications that are not component-based cannot use COM+ services unless they implement an intermediary component.
To overcome this, COM+ 1.5 introduces the Services Without Components (SWC) feature. SWC allows an application to use COM+ services without having to implement a ServicedComponent object or configure it in the COM+ catalog.
