Web Services & VB.NET

I've created a VBA application within AutoCAD a few years back. I'm migrating to VB.NET and am wondering how VBA/AutoCAD will handle all my VB.NET assemblies I've created. First off, can AutoCAD call a webservice? Can AutoCAD instantiate an Assembly and work with it's properties and methods?

Thanks,
Derek

AutoCAD exposes a .NET API; by and large, you use it just as any other .NET
API. That is, there aren't a lot of special rules for .NET that only apply
to AutoCAD.

I use web services with C# and AutoCAD, and it all works just fine.
