invoking a method in an existing vb dll from java servlet
posted 12 years ago
Hi, I have a vb dll with a method. The method is say: quoteMortgageProtection(ByVal strInsurerList as String, ByVal dteLife1DOB as Date, ByVal intLife1AgeNextBirthday as Integer, ByVal dblIntrestRate as Double)
and return type is String. Note again this is a DLL created in VB.
Now I have a servlet class that needs to invoke this method passing the arguments and the method returns it a string. How can I do it? I know I have to use jni, but in case of jni, the native program is created based on a header file created after i run the javah on the java class. This is not possible here coz I have the vb dll (no code) and cannot rewrite it. Please let me know what should I do? Also since the method is to be invoked from the servlet running in tomcat 5, will there be any security issue? thankx Tanveer [ August 19, 2004: Message edited by: Tanveer Rameez ]
