i am working on a jee application but i am quite unsure of how my application client, deployed on a different client machine will connect to the server machine.
i would like to know what to specify and how to configure the client application running in a remote client machine to connect to the server machine. i use netbeans ide for
my program development and the glassfish v2 application server. any help would be highly appreciated

You've said nothing about the nature of the client application, so I'm not sure how to answer.

I'm wondering if this post is in the wrong forum?

Since you have posted in the servlets forum, the standard way for a client to connect is to enter the web address (URL) of the servlet into their browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, ...). An example might be http:8080//localhost/MyApplication/MyServlet

You might also have a web server (Apache / IIS / ...) fronting the web application server, which would enable you to drop the port number, and possibly use URL rewriting to make nicer URLs.

Does that answer your question?

Of course there are many more ways of connecting a client to a server, some using servlets, some without. Without knowing more (as David said) we can't really make guesses.

the application client for this jee enterprise application is a standalone swing application deployed on a client machine that can connect to the server.
on the same machine, it simply runs, netbeans takes care of that, but on a different client machine, i am not sure how to set it to connect to the server on a dedicated machine that contains the EIS and the EJBs

i have read the jee 5.0 tutorial but cannt seem to find the configuration information.

any help will be gladly welcome.

Moving, since appears to have nothing to do with servlets.
