Creating a Server Component with Visual Basic
This article is primarily for Active Server Pages (ASP) developers who would like to take their ASP skills a step further. By bundling ASP code into server-side components, developers not only increase Visual Basic functionality and ASP speed, but also find a marvelous way to encapsulate and protect their ASP source code. This tutorial will walk you through the process of developing a very simple server-side ActiveX ASP component. The emphasis will be on the steps it takes to produce a server-side Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file, not on complex ASP scripting or advanced VB code.
