If anyone is currently using ASP Classic Compiler for company or personal project, please response to this forum. I would like to know how many people are actually able to run their project.

Hi, dotneteer.

First of all, thanks for your great effort!

 

I plan to use ASP Classic Compiler for one of my clients, having 1000+ asp pages.

We got some issues with certain Crystal Report component calls and WScript.Shell executions.

There are other minor issues with the use be vbs Classes within the code base.

Whycodeplex,
Thank you for your feed back. Do you think the source code of the compiler will help you debugging the problem?
I also like to understand the COM interop problem.

I am not the one working on the COM interop issue, but I will ask my co-worker.

I think having the source code of the compiler will help debugging some of the issues but most likely not the Crystal Reports ones.

Thanks

Hi, dotneteer,

first thanks for building this very interesting project.
We have evaluated the current compiler. We also want to convert all
MTS objects of our application objects to native .net ones, wich worked well
on our test cases.
But the risk investing a lot of time is this migration without having
the source code in our hand, has let us stop this.
In the case that you will open source the code, we will be very
interested in continuing the evaluation.

Best regards
Jochen

P.S.: One big problem ist that for some type of syntactical errors there is
no meaningful error message - perhaps while debugging the compiler
that could give more information to the error.

Thanks Donneteer for open-sourcing the project.

Hi dotneteer,

thank you. I hope I will find some time for starting the migration.
After that we will try to participate on the project.

Best regards,
Jochen

I've been looking at it for swapping out a fair chunk of legacy code until we can press on into a full .Net rewrite. We use ASP with WSC's alot and then other .Net components exposed through COM.

Sadly though the code is all VBScript 5, classes etc, so I haven't been able to try it.

However I'd be interested in contributing where possible.
