[IronPython] new to Iron and question.

I had a client-side COM .dll automation file (used by IE browser) that 
connects to a WCOM server running under JBoss on Linux connecting via 
JDBC to Oracle on Solaris.

Once we found iPy, we forged ahead with a single Windows host as the 
intermediary between our other Unix clients.  No .dll COM automation 
required on the clients as they all communicate via http to the single 
IronPython host running the http server.
The iPy tutorial explains how to convert your .dll COM file using the 
.NET SDK and import it for use in IronPython.

We researched your question about COM on Linux and only found defunct 
projects for COM emulation on Unix.

But iPy give you the COM automation in your iPy scripts along with all 
the Python goodness (e.g. http server, queue server, etc).
