Does anyone know how to use a Java class from an ASP page? I'm working on a project in which I'd like to be able to do so, but I'm having trouble getting it to work.
I found this on msdn.microsoft.com that explains how to do it but, in order to complete the process, I need to get the javareg utility which, supposedly, is included with Microsoft's Java SDK. Unfortunately, I can't find that SDK available for download anywhere.
I've got a number of competing influences on this project. First of all, the customer that this application is intended for has no one on staff that knows anything at all about web applications and, more importantly, application servers. Therefore, I'd just as soon use IIS because it's simply packaged with Windows and, for the most part is simple to use.
On the other hand, I'm not nearly as fluent with VBScript as I am with Java so I'd prefer to do the "heavy lifting" of the application with Java. So, if I put those pieces together, I end up with a situation in which I need to invoke methods on a Java class from an ASP page.
So, with that in mind, anyone have any experience with this?
Just my two cents, and I am by no means a Web expert.
