What are the technical reasons for choosing between the JNP and HTTP transports for JNDI?
As far as I can tell HTTP simplifies traversal of firewalls and proxies but apart from that I can't see any other benefit.
Which is higher performance and are there any benchmarks to back it up?
I work on a reasonably large development project with RMI communications between EJBs. The project is split between using the JNP and HTTP transports. I want to standardise on one protocol and would like to base the decision on some technical points.
There are no firewalls between any of the components.
