    Invoke HttpClient from an EJB

    Jing X. Newbie


      We have this standalone application that uses HttpClient to download data from web and put them in database. The HttpClient is created with a MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager, i.e., there are multiple threads managed by HttpClient downloading data concurrently.

      Now we are asked to re-implement the logic in EJBs. Obviously, we cannot continue to use the MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager because of the J2EE multi-threading limitation. We are planning to simulate the behavior by making multiple invocations from a servlet to the session bean that drives HttpClient in single thread mode. Does this sound like a viable solution?

      Thanks for any input.
