I don't work with ASPX or whatever it is now very much at all. I work with WinForms and DLLs most of the time, but I was asked by a client to make a portion of an application available online so that their clients can access certain information without calling them and asking.
So, my question is, since it is a WinForms application, is it possible to place some of the DLLs and/or executables on a ASPX web server and have the pages access the methods in those or will I need to re-write them for the web?
I've seen some web projects contain class files, but I'm not sure if those are being compiled to a DLL or what? I have no idea how ASPX works really other than it's cool to play with.
I'm attending a Microsoft seminar in Creve Coeur Missouri on the first on Cloud Computing and evidently I'll get time in the cloud for free to play around but I'm worried I'm going to waste my free time there since I really don't know what it can do and thought this might be an opportunity to have something to try.
So anyway, back to the original question, can WinForms DLLs and/or executables be accessed on the web? I mean the methods/properties etc, not necessarily the forms themselves.
