I'm not actually sure which CreateObject/GetObject you are referring to as I don't do ASP.NET (so I am not arguing in any direction, just offering a Ruby / Rails perspective), but if it has something to do with OLE objects you could do this in your Rails app

CreateObject/GetObject are left-overs from VB Sripting days, (I meant to type "To my knowledge, RoR doesn't support COM/DCOM" but I was half-asleep at the time).
