I currently have an ASP web application hosted on our webserver in our DMZ. To make calls to webMethods services inside our firewall, it uses reverse invoke. The asp page calls a vb6 DLL (code generated in webMethods Developer) that calls the web methods service.
The problem is that often, it seems that IIS keeps a hold on the DLL and causes the application to fail. When a call is made to the DLL it just times out. Some times it even makes other reverse invoke processes fail.
I’m looking at re-writting the ASP part in .NET, but don’t know how .NET interacts with webMethods services. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I did try the DSP route, but unfortunately has some limitations that won’t work with my application.
