Calling COM+ component from webservice


G

Greg Busby

I am a newbie to ASP.NET and webservices. I have a webservice that is
calling a C# dll. This dll then calls methods in a VB COM+ component.
The COM+ component is not instantiating correctly. The return value of
the called function is an ADO recordset. Looking at the value of the
variable in the watch window, it is undeclared. So, the function is not
completing. I ran this code from a straight WinForms application and it
worked fine. Is there something about webservices that would prevent me
from doing what I am attempting? I got the following message in he
output window:

Interop.Grading QueryInterface for interface Grading._clsGrading
failed. Since the calling of the COM+ component works fine in a
WinForms app, is the problem one of security/permissions?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

unlike Winforms (or WebForms which support the aspcompat flag), calling STA
(vb6) com components is not directly supported with webservices. you need
to create your own STA thread to manage calls to the component. you only
other option is to host the com object in a com+ application (though there
is a big performance cost).
