To invoke an external component from a USoft application, you need to perform the following general steps:

1.Build the external component using DCOM, or find a predefined component.
2.Define the component, its method, and its parameter list in the USoft repository. Depending on how the component is to be used, you may need to associate it with the USoft query protocol.
3.Invoke the component method from one or more SQL statements within the application, using the INVOKE clause.
