converting from legacy COM objects

P: n/a
I have a large "legacy" web application written in asp.old that relied
on some COM objects. While I am aware that it is possible to use legacy
COM objects within an asp.net application, is it possible to do the
reverse? In other words, would it be possible to rewrite some of the
legacy COM objects in .NET (provided all the methods & properties have
the same definitions) and integrate it into the asp.old application? If
so, are registration procedures the same as with legacy COM objects
(regsvr32.exe)?

Philip,

It is definitely possible to create COM objects in .NET, and then expose
them to ASP. Check out the section of the .NET framework titled "Exposing
..NET Framework Components to COM", located at (watch for line wrap):

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...nentsToCOM.asp

Hope this helps.

Very much possible. You would need to create a regular .net application
If you look in MSDN theres a lot of infomation on how you can do that
