I'm looking into migrating a CF 8 server from Windows to
Unix. I see in the documentation for CreateObject that com objects
are not supported on Unix, "Note: On UNIX, this function does not
support COM objects."
Obviously, this won't work on Unix: Note:
<cfset image = CreateObject( 'com', 'ImageStoreCom.Image'
But what about this, can I create a remote com object?:
<!-- assume '220.127.116.11' is a windows machine with a
registered com object on it -->
<cfset image = CreateObject( 'com',
'ImageStoreCom.Image', 'remote', '18.104.22.168' )
Finally, if the example above is out of the question, are
then any techniques for exposing a com object to CF on a Unix box?
I'm wondering if maybe I could write a Java wrapper for the com
object and expose it that way?
