Invoking MTS/COM+ from a browser-bound ActiveX Control

Dear Experts

Here's the scenario:
The client application has its GUI as well as all its libraries packaged into an Active-X control. It runs in the customer's browser. The remote IIS/SQL server recieves requests for data etc. via port 80.

The powers that be want me to remove the libraries from the ActiveX control, and implement them as COM+/MTS applications on the remote server.

Is this possible? If so, what changes would I have to make to the client's as well as the server's configuration? Would it be possible to invoke COM+/MTS services via port 80 too?

Many Thanks
Sean McDonald

If all of the calls are in a class(es) within the control just remove them.  Compile them into a DLL(s), and call them from the control.

Once you compile the DLL(s) and create the MTS package you will need to reference the DLL in the control and dim and set the objects in the control.  Once you do this you should be able to call them just as you are now with little or no modifications.  

If you want to call the procedures from an ASP page you will need to create the objects in the ASP page...

set objMyObject = server.CreateObject("projname.clsname")

Once you create the object you can call it just as you would within the control.

I hope this all makes sense.  Let me know if I am off track.
