How to call a AS function from C++?

Just to be clear, I am not doing any reentrancy work here, I am just
trying to create a ScriptObject and call AS method in that object from
C++. Even I am not sure how to setup the namespaces/domains etc for
execution of methods. I am doing it by trial and error.  

So far from C++ 
- I am able to find a globally defined object (instance of a class) - I
call it as a factory object.
- call an AS method on factory from C++. This method internally create a
new object instance of another AS class and returns it to C++.

And now I am trying call method on the newly created object and having
problem with namespace. Somehow calling method on factory object from
C++ did not create any problem for namespace.

Is it possible to do this? I thought the interpreter was not reentrant.

I'm interested in a full answer as well. I'm working on some stuff where

I need to understand in detail how method calls and such work and what 
can be done in the existing infrastructure.
