Calling ActiveX component from VB?


I found a bunch of COM objects that would (I hope) make it a breeze to move often-changing routines from our VB applications into web services, and call thoses routines through XML-RPC.

Has any VB developer here worked with XML-RPC? If yes, which tool would you recommend to build the web service (PHP? ActiveX EXE?), and which XML-RPC component did you use to make your VB client application XML-RPC-aware?

And since we're on the subject... should I look at the more sophisticated SOAP instead?

Thx much for any contribution

PS : For those interested, implementations of XML-RPC are listed at (duh)
