What are best network protcols to use for an java application client (e.g. swing, etc. ) to communicate to a remote server through a firewall ?
Practically, I am thinking to use (xml through https/http). Is this is the xml-rpc ?
We can do rmi tunneling. However, It is not as good as xml-rpc ?
Please clarify for me.
Thanks
Ruilin

XML-RPC and Soap are two different protocols. Soap is newer and cooler . Check out the Fall '01 JAX Pack from Sun, which includes the JAXM Soap messaging package. It exposes Soap at a pretty low level, for something more high level you'll have to wait a bit longer for JAX-RPC; it promises to make Soap method calls as easy as RMI method calls. Also have a look at Apache SOAP and Apache Axis.
For an XML-RPC implementation, see for example Apache XML-RPC.
