Hi SCEAs and SCEAs to-be!
in the assignment a XML-RPC protocol is used to talk to another system.
I only know about synchronous RPC protocols. Can you imagine a asynchronous
RPC protocol???
My question is caused by the following:
The user indirectly sends a call to the other system and only gets a email with the results of the call.
This sounds like the result comes in asynchron.
What do you think?

Hi Roger,
I have allowed this question to remain for the moment, but it is very close to being outside of what we allow in this forum. Please be aware that we do not allow discussion of specific details of the SCEA assignment. I think your question is generic enough to pass at present, but only just.
We just had a discussion about what is a Synchronous vs Asynchronous method over in the SCJD forum.
I think you need to decide whether you need to model at a protocol level or at a business level. It is quite possible to have an asynchronous business method that works over synchronous protocols.
Regards, Andrew

I think a good design lets you replace those guys without a major rewrite to the business logic.
