An ActiveX control (in the context of a web page) is a clientside application, and JSP runs on the server. So you can't call one from the other, unless you are calling the underlying Servlet via HTTP from the ActiveX controll. Depending on your ActiveX control, perhaps you can pass parameters via the HTML the JSP generates, or maybe you can call it via clientside VBScript (IE only of course), but there's no route using JSPs to call methods on an ActiveX control.
