	The whole Idea behind going for a COM implementation is to enable
interfacing with IIS/ASP,and hence to reap all the benefits associated in
doing so, Can there be any further guidance from you in this direction?

Are you creating the COM interfaces to enable embedding, etc in
batch/GUI programs, or are you doing this to enable interfacing with IIS
and/or ASP via COM rather than using the CGI functionality ?

I think it would make the most sense for a COM module to follow
MapScript. Assuming your dll is destined for public consumption that
would make it much easier to use. The file mapscript.i in the mapscript
directory documents much of the SWIG generated interface. I can help
further if this is of interest to you.
