Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Loading VB Component(DLL) in java
I have a VB Component(DLL)registered in the system.The basic functionality of the component is pass the range of values to the Excel template to draw a chart or graph.These values are available in the database.Based on these values the chart or graph can be drawn in Excel and in turn the VB Component converts this Excel graph in to HTML format.That is the component returns the graph or chart in html format.Currently this component is loaded or called from the ASP and displays the graph or chart in HTML format.
