we are relatively new to jboss and are trying to decide if jboss and remoting are appropriate for our new application.
we are staring to map out the architecture for a new application that will communicate with WI-FI clocks. the communication is all socket based.
essentially the "conversation" between the new application (we call is the LC - local concentrator") and the clocks - is a socket based, syncronous dialog where byte streams are passed back and forth. there will be some database lookups and inserts.
the number of clocks will vary - but it is likely that there will be 300 - 2000 clocks all talking to the LC at intervals of 1 - 4 times per day.
it would be great if i could gain some general architectural input and or some examples from people that may be using jboss in a similar environemtn.
some of our hesitation (from going forward with jboss) is that our particular use case - does not resemble the typical e-commerce environment that you see in so many places.
any help or feedback would be apprecated.
