    Connecting without using client API

    Lee Kemp Newbie

      Hi,

      I am thinking about using remoting on a new project, but am unable to find any information regarding if it is posible for clients to connect to the server without using the client API.

      The reason I need to know this is because the server will need to be accessable to Java, Delphi and Flash applications.

      Is this possible? Does anyone know of any examples?

      Thanks!!

      Lee.

          Technically, yes, this would be possible. The only problem is will have to have custom marshaller/unmarshaller on the server side. Currently the marshallers use java serialization to convert the bytes on the wire into java objects and then back into binary data to put on the wire. So would have to come up with your own standard for what your different clients (Java, Delphi, Flash, etc.) write to the network wire (i.e. what the byte stream will be). Then will have to write the unmarshaller so can read those bytes off the wire and create a jboss remoting InvocationRequest out of this data.

          There are no examples for this, but would be willing to help with writing the custom marshaller/demarshaller if you'd be willing to have it included within the project when done.
