Hi All,
I'm having a problem with regard to access a Microsoft COM object from JSP pages, which is interfacing to some database tables and providing some Encryption / Decryption mechanisms.
There are two possibilities that has been considered by my manager.
1) Access the COM object with a ASP and access that ASP in the JSP.
2) Use SOAP and access the COM object directly from a bean and use the bean in the JSP.
From the above two methods, I like to implement the 2nd option. But I need to have a enough clues to convince my manager.
I would appreciate if anyone could lit a light on this....
