Hi all,
Now I am designing an infrastructure for PDA application. The basic use case is that the employees need to communicate with the manager about the sales information. So, the employees should be able to both send and receive information to/from the server. How can I do it?
I don't think it should be a Servlet based achitecture, since then the client won't be able to be informed by the manager of any urgent things at any time he wants to. So, for a active two-way communication, I am thinking whether RMI can do this. Does anyone know whether i could invoke a remote object on the PDA from a server?
Thanks.
cindy

There is a J2ME RMI JSR. I forget the number. Of course, RMI can be ticky over a lossy connection.

the jcp is:

based on your description though, i think what you may be looking for is some sort of server push architecture.
