I would like to know the following
(1) Can we make TCP socket connections to the JBoss Application server? As far as I know the connections with application server should be RMI/IIOP. We need to investigate if the C++ client can directly connect to the session beans without going through the IIOP.
(2) Can the TCP connections to the server be load balanced and configured for seamless failover to other servers in the cluster?
Suggestion: Why not create Java Clients that are incorperated
into C++ via JNI? Or, better yet, drop C++ :-)
