OpenVMS to OpenVMS via COM?

» close window

The Question is:

Wether an Web Server with Open Vms as OS on Alpha platform can talk to
Application with Open Vms as OS on Alpha platform using COM objects ?

The Answer is :

  This would be rather more work and more software layers than would
  typically be needed (as COM is not typically native to OpenVMS or
  OpenVMS web servers, but COM is available for OpenVMS) -- but yes,
  this rather odd approach should be feasible.  Microsoft COM is layered
  onto the DCE standards, and this capability is also available on OpenVMS.
