Hi there,

Hope this is the right forum for the question.
I have an application which is completely in core java (no web components no ejb ) but this app may be consumed by a java web app.
So ideally this will be bundled as a jar file but my question is how can a standalone jar file be deployed to an app server or others and be made available for consumption.

Do chip in with your thoughts.


Thanks,
Mohit

You wouldn't "deploy" it to an app server--if it's not an app, doing so would be meaningless.

It could expose a library which is *used* by an app, however.

The answer to this question may depend upon what you mean by "consume": is it a library? A set of services?

Currently we bundle it as a library with the client apps who consume it.
But we were thinking on the lines of providing it as service.

You're going to need to wrap it in a service provider framework. For example, as a web service.

Thanks Tim.

Is there any other java based alternative to web services.

Yes, lots. Though some of them are web services as opposed to "WEB SERVICES". for example, REST.
