Currently, we have windows applications that use an ActiveX dll to communicate with the mainframe as follows:
Me.ebX = New AxBrokerLib.AxBroker
brokerX = ebX.CreateTransObject(TorFile)
The current way of doing things requires a TOR file which is dated. In order to avoid infrastrucure changes to the mainframe side, the developer has no issue with the continued use of TOR files since they have proven their reliability in the past. But, they need a comparable, non-activeX DLL that will provide the same functionality as the activeX DLL.
The new solution will not include any WinForm involvement and the developer is merely seeking the identical functionality in a different library. In short just trying to figure out a way to use the ActiveX EntireX component outside of WinForms. The questions are…
- Is there a comparable non ActiveX DLL that provides the same functionality as AxInterop.BrokerLib.dll and still uses TOR files?
- If not, is the only other avenue to go with IDL/.Net Wrapper classes available thru the EntireX toolbox?
- Any other solution I may not know of
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!
