What is the easiest way to interface a client, written in vb.net to a j2ee appserver, running on nt/unix/s390?
I'm thinking about using a CORBA orb and RMI/IOOP as protocol, but then i need an orb written in VB.NET
Also SOAP would be possible, but then i think, there's a problem communicating with a statefull session bean, because in SOAP, there's no support for this. Also the peformance might be y problem because of the overhead with the XML communication.
Another problem is that i have to support JBOSS and Weblogic.
Any help is appreciated
if you need to support both JBoss and Weblogic then either SOAP or something like the J-Integra Java-COM bridge (for example using JMS to talk to MDB on a J2EE server) might be the way to go.
