    Default Suggestions on Multi Client Java Application

    Hi all,

    I am currently designing a standalone Java application that can potentially talk to different external APIs (e.g. WebServices, XMLRPC server, JSON servlets etc).

    I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what technology to use to implement my above design? Would JMS be an appropriate application or do I need some to implement server logic to send and get requests/responses from these different APIs.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards.

    I think you need to explore the API's specific to each type for a standalone app. Most people would probably not attempt this with a standalone app, but would start with a webserver infrastructure and go from there.

    Default Suggestions on Multi Client Java Application

    Thank you very much toadaly.

    May I ask you to expand on what you mean by a webserver infrastructure?


    I am essentially planning on implementing the following infrastructure:

    1 webserver (to serve clients with data) <---> 1 data server (the standalone application I was talking about earlier to interface, gather and process data from various external APIs) <---> Multiple external APIs

    Should I have the data server application sitting behind a webserver (e.g. tomcat?) or should I have it as a standalone application that implements sockets (one per API) to send and obtain requests/response to and fro the different APIs.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards.

    ok, so if you're already planning to use a webserver, then use what it offers. For example, XMLRPC is supported in apache servlets. For JSON, there are JSON bridges available for tomcat too.

    Personally, I'd probably start by seeing if I could get everything I needed from jsp using tomcat. I've only written a few apps like this, so I don't consider myself an expert, so for what it's worth...
