Calling RPC present in different server

Can we call a gwt rpc which is not part of the current application?

The scenario is that i had a GWT application say APP1 running on Tomcat Server. And i had one GWT application say APP2 running on JBOSS server.
Now let us say that we had an rpc call say GetDataFromServer.getSpecificData(userId) in APP2. (GetDataFromServer is the synchronous interface and getSpecificData() is the method.

Now can i call this getSpecificData() rpc from APP1?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Ranch.

If you insist on using RPC to switch calls to a different server, then I think you are lucked out. However, GWT does provide you with client side HTTP APIs. Check out http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/doc/1.6/DevGuideServerCommunication.html#DevGuideHttpRequests

Considering the same origin policy restrictions, I personally would use the server side to switch calls.
Client->originating server->different server and reverse route back.

Dear Maneesh,

Thank you for the info.
I had already taken a glance at the HTTP Requests of the GWT.
I am checking if there is any other alternative solution.
