hosting c# forms and app in a delphi 7 win32 host


i realise this is an esoteric subject, but im hoping someone can help

im working with a legacy application that was originaly developed in
delphi 7, and inaddition to this the application has a few newer
modules (winforms c# dll's) loaded and running under the delphi host,
and there is some object data retrieval by the c# stuff from the main
delphi app.

The owners now want to replace and upgrade more delphi parts by more
c#, but comunication, loading and performance of the dotnet stuff is
slow and kludgy.

a rewrite of the application in dotnet from scratch wont be considered

so im hoping someone out there may have done something similar in the
past an can point me to or provide samples of the most efficient and
best performing way to have c# dotnet stuff hosted in such a way. I
want to re-write the way it is loaded and hosted now to make the
whole thing faster

any advice or examples or ideas appreciated

Hi, I am researching if it is possible to incorporate the web forms designer that is used by visual studio in another application.

Is it possible to host a .NET Web Service (managed code using the .NET Framework 1.1) without IIS? I remember a website that indicated it was possible to use a .NET Remoting server to host a Web Service. Could client code that consumes a Remoting *web service* be used interchangeably to consume the same interface from a web service hosted in IIS? Gary

I am using a C# assembly in Delphi.Win32 using the com interop services. This works fine, but I am looking for a way to debug the C# assembly. When using a Delphi program as a host for the assembly, the program quits at the point where it uses the assembly. If I start the Delphi program itself, all works fine, but I can't debug the C# code. Is there a way to have the Delphi debugger step into the C# assembly when it's loaded? Or is there...

Dear List, We have a large application written in Delphi. I am writing a mobile app written in .NET (C#) which reads and writes into the Delphi applications Oracle database via a .NET Web Service.
