I am fetching data from Clear Quest using c# through internet explorer. Now i want to remove the internet explorer as dependency and write my own code to get defect information. Is there any way to do that? Please let me know if any better solution exist. I don't have native client.

If your original solution is based on Internet Explorer, then you are accessing the ClearQuest Web. If you try to remove the dependency of Internet Explorer, you need to implement the HTTP request and response processing in your C# code. In this case, the ClearQuest native client is never involved.

If your original solution is based the ClearQuest COM component, then it is a different story. In this case, you need to implement a completely different solution which should be based on ClearQuest OSLC REST API.
