interaction between JEE-Server and Windows PC App.

Discussion in 'Java' started by Frank Langelage, Jul 1, 2006.

  1. We're using JBoss for different tasks, mostly running on a unix box.
    No we have the task to call the transformation of a binary file to a xml
    file on a windows PC. On this PC there is a COM-component available to
    do this.
    How to initiate this from a JEE-Server on the server?

    So far we thought to create an app running as a service on the PC.
    It gets the file as a binary stream, calls the functions of the com
    object and sends back the xml.

    But how to initiate this and what to use for communication.
    Plain sockets and a self defined protocol, requiring to build an
    JCA-adapter on the server side?
    Message queues?

    Any comments or proposals?

    I would choose XML-RPC or SOAP.

    No problem from the server side since we already use web services, but
    this will need a web server (e.g. tomcat) and and module (e.g. Axis) on
    the PC. A lot of stuff to call this single service method.
