I've been asked to write a web service that will serve many web based clients simultaneously.
I have previously created web services that service only one client.
My web service will connect to a com-object and retrieve data from another application from that com-object.
With a web service being stateless, how can I do this?
There will be a lot of GetFirst / GetNext calls to retrieve data, but I can't figure out how to do this without declaring my variables as shared.
For instance, if I declare the com-object as public in my web service and create it during a InitializeClass call, the com-objects value is NOTHING when I call GetFirst immediately after initializing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
