I was wondering what j2ee technology can I use to interface with a legacy CGI based web application. As an architect if I just mention a design pattern between a j2ee web app and legacy web app, will that satify examination objective?

thanks

No, I guess you have to elaborate more then just throwing one Design Pattern to solve the problem.

To interface with the CGI, I am not sure what to use. If anyone??

Maybe simulate web browser a.k.a. screen scrapper ?

You could easily create http client which can send requests to this CGI driven application. This client could be placed on app server or even deployed as standalone app.

Just my 2 cents.
