Hi, how come I cant use Server.CreateObject("some.object", "somemachine") like this? I can call CreateObject (without going through the server object) instead, and this works. Why is this?

Thanks in advance!

Server.CreateObject invokes objects that are installed of the machine where you execute it = webserver.

So in order to use those objects, you need to install the right applications (in case 3rd party or MS components like ADO) or register the right components/dll's (in case custom components)

This is because you are trying to create an object on another machine (NOT YOURS) so CreateObject without Server will be correct.

the createobject function in a script-host context does not support remote initialization...to get around this you can create a simple dll with the extended functionality, register the remote component library or interface locally, and register the remote component in component services on the remote machine.

'====================================
' demo.asp
'

<%

dim rDisp
dim rObj

  set rDisp = createobject ( "MyLocalLib.remoteDispatch" )
  set rObj = rDisp.createobjectEx( "MyRemoteLib.remoteObject", "MyRemoteServer" )
  if ( typename ( rObj ) = "Err" ) then
    response.write err.description
  else
    ' do some stuff
  end if
  set rObj = nothing
  set rDisp = nothing

%>

' end of demo.asp


'====================================
' MyLocalLib.remoteDispatch.cls
'====================================

public function createobjectEx ( byval className$, byval machineName$ ) as object
dim rObj as object

  on error resume next
  err.clear
  set rObj = createobject ( className$, machineName$ )
  if ( err.number <> 0 )
    set createobjectEx = err
    err.clear
  else
    set createobject = rObj
  end if
  set rObj = nothing
end function

Any reason not to just use CreateObject? (instead of Server.CreateObject). Why make CreateObjectEx?

This question is for you, Droby10, since you are the only one who actually read my question, hehe :O)

you would need to provide the remote initialization functionality...createobject does not take 2 parameters in a scripting or within the iserverobject interface...

the createobjectex does this.

Greetings, pede:

I see that you logged in as recently as 01/29/02, but have not finalized or updated your open questions.  You have asked 59 of them and only closed/awarded 47 of them.  Of those you've closed, 10 of them were stuck against userid-1 rather than actually experts receiving them due to the JSP-500 errors of that time frame, and I have corrected all of them for you today so that the intended experts finally get these points and have validated your pointsas well.  I will post this information in all your open questions so that you can quickly and easily navigate through them and update them.  If you've been helped, please award the expert who helped you to close them.  If more is needed, please add comments with details.  In the event more than one expert helped you, let us know the expert name and points you wish to give them so that we can help you with Points Splits.  

This information is helpful in terms of this site's Guidelines, Member Agreement and the Question / Answer process.  Also, any time you need our help, just post a zero point question in the Community Support topic area with your request along with the question link.  Here are the links to Community Support and the site related information links:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/infoWhatsNew.jsp

These are all your OPEN QUESTIONS which require your attention and in which this update will be posted:  Please note, some are so old, they date back to the year 2000 in which the question sort order is not in the normal comment date order, but rather in userid order, so special attention needs to be paid to them in determining the first/best response given.

Some of your questions are open for low or zero points, help given and still not awarded.  When you check the links I provided above, you'll find that the recommended value for EASY questions is 50 points, and the maximum for difficult questions is 300 points.  You can increase the value of any of them yourself without Moderator help to draw more attention, if that is needed.

Your response in updating and closing all your open questions is not only appreciated, but necessary.  I have sent this information to Administration.

Thanks,
Moondancer
