I am learning Ajax... & using IE6 ...

The application is running fine in Mozilla but not in IE. Below I am providing my code.
new ActiveXObject(..) does not provide the object... Please guide me...

The code I am providing has three files:
1. register.jsp
2. web.xml
3. RegisterAction

Running the code using Tomcat5.

1. register.jsp

2. web.xml

3. RegisterAction

The serverside code really does not matter in this case. If the ActiveX is not working, that means your Activex must be disabled.

Then I closed all running browser windows & opened new IE window & again tried,
but again the same error(Defined when no activex object found.)

I agree. Here's the link:
