How to use DLL with a web service?

Hello,

I would like to use a VB.NET application in the web, created a DLL for the application and trying to include it as part of a web service to view the application in the web.  I added to DLL as a reference in the webservice but don't know what to do from there, please help.

I am using Visual Studio 2008 (VB.NET) to create the DLL and webservice.

Thanks,

Victor

If its a standard asp.net web service then you put the DLL in the bin directory the same as a regular asp.net site.

Just add a reference to your DLL in the Web Service project, then deploy the web service, it will include the dll in the bin folder

The problem is even with the dll as part of the webservice, when I access the webservice in vb.net, I don't see the application that was converted to the dll, how do I access the dll?

How do I access the webservice from asp.net?

Thanks,

Victor
I'm not sure exactly what you are asking... are you familiar with building as asp.net web service?

Is this any help http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/t113267-how-to-reference-a-dll-from-aspx.html
I would Like to use a vb.net application in the web, converted it to a dll to use with asp.net in order to use it in the web. I was told to include it in a webservice than call the webservice with asp.net, is that correct? Or is there a way to use the dll with asp.net directly?
