Yes, it is possible to run both IIS and WebDb. I tried running WebDb under IIS and found it worked Okay as long as you didn't try to create a site.

The real question is what do you want from WebDb? My team has given up on WebDb and OAS together. We are using straight OAS with its PL/SQL cartridge which is what allows you to create stored procedures that generate html.

OAS allows you to run it under another listener like IIS. Calls to OAS stuff get directed
to it and the rest is handled by the primary listener (IIS for example). This allows the
database access and should also allow your asp to run.

I hope I've answered you question,
