Please suggest a suitable solution for this problem.

We have a Java Desktop application which works with two other third party applications. The application handles a lot of files in the local machine.

Now, the Java application has to be executed through web. Which framework / combination should be used for this Web part?

Please provide your suggestions.....

Thanks in Advance

What are your requirements for security in the following areas:

1. authentication of user requests
2. will HTTPS be sufficient security or do you need
3. encryption/signing of transmitted data

Also what about:
4. number of simultaneous users
5. typical file size

Hi Bill,

Thanks for your reply. Please guide me on this.

Answer for your queries are as follows:

1. User Authentication is required
2. Its an Intranet application. So, HTTPS is more than enough.
3. Encryption is not required
4. At any time, Only one user will be accessing the Java Desktop application. Simultaneously, Other users could access other areas, such as going through the report etc. Total number of simultaneous users will not go beyond 10 at any time. Even 10 is very high.
5. Files will be handled only by the Desktop application.

The Web part should
initiate the Desktop application by passing the required parameters(an XML file & the functions to execute).
Read/Write some XML files in the server machine.
Show some reports to the users.

Sounds to me like this could be handled as a REST style service, no need to get involved with SOAP.

Here is one starting point for the Jersey RESTful style open-source server.

You might also browse through recent posts in the forum, REST gets mentioned frequently.
