I am currently working on a portlet that contains a java applet in the client's browser that communicates over a Socket with a ServerSocket in a Thread running on the jboss server .
What I am trying to figure out is how to start up this java program on the server when the deployment of the WAR file occurs. How would I go about this? I am thinking I need to add something to the **-object.xml or the web.xml or portlet-instances.xml or portlet.xml. The java file I want to invoke is in the org.jboss.server.applet package and is called AppletServer.java.
I am kind of a newbie with all of this, so any help is very much appreciated.
