Hi All

I have a requirement like this.

A java client application (can be a web based or a standalone java app) which makes a query to a remote server (again java). The server is to process this query, get some values from the DB and build an xml file and return it back to the client. There can be mulitple clients sending queries to the server. What would be the best way to implement this and why?

Is it a good idea (in terms of performance and reliability) to implement this using SOAP with attachments? But in that case, will I be able to use this from non web based java clients? How about XML-RPC?

Please help !!


Thanx and Regards
Biju Nair

if you think your requirement has characterstics of a *webservice* then you can use xml rpc and if you think issues like availability, performance, security matter very much then you can use java socket programming to transfer the xml from server to client in the form of bytes.
