Invoking MTS/COM+ from a browser-bound ActiveX Control
Posted on 2002-06-06
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?
