winforms vb.net asp.net conversion

Hi all,

We have a vb.net app (WinForms) that has been running for a while now
in production. We'd now like to make it into a thin client by moving
to a web-based application and asp.net.

I'm not very familiar with asp.net, but am very familiar with vb.net.
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to start this process ?
I'd like to avoid having to re-write major portions of the application.
How well to WinForm controls move over to ASP ?

Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Hi,

If you can be assure that all your clients have .net framework installed,
you can make your app to a custom control and add it to an asp.net page. .
If you can not be assure that, you need to rewrite the app since u need to
use the web ctl on your asp.net page. Otherwise, it will not work if your
clients has no .net framework.

I know for a fact that all client machines have the .net framework
installed.

How do I go about making my entire app a custom control ? Do you have
any examples that would help me out here ?

Also, this app does oracle connectivity, will it still use the oracle
client installed on the user machines ?

Thanks.
