Hi, I want to have a VC++ code calling a Java interface to do some work. Now does this Java application need to be based on an EJB architecture to be used by VC++ IDE ? I know that can be done through CORBA but how does a Java application based on EJB architecture be called by VC++ code, if at all it works that way. Could you also direct me to any link or technologies which talks about it ? Thanks Sandeep
Hi Dana, You are right, the Java code can be re-written in VC++. But the whole idea will be the time and resources spent on re-writing this massive application. More than that, I have never worked on VC++. Its been all Java most of the time. You said JMS; does that mean that I must make this application based on EJB architecture first? Once I get this functionality encapsulated within the bean, how do I register this with the Windows in order for VC++ to call it ? Any further directions will be appreciated ! Sandeep
Someone mentioned JIntegra. It is a good, quick solution but a) it can be expensive and b) you are tied to a proprietary solution. It might be OK for an internal app, but I wouldn't suggest it for a customer app.
Two words -- Web Services. Go read about how to publish your EJB's as Web Services in J2EE (perhaps using Richard Monson-Haefel's excellent book on J2EE web services) and then go learn how to invoke Web Services from .NET. Kyle
