I envisage 3 physical servers: a WEBserver running Tomcat 4.1, a Database Server running MS-SQL-Server or Oracle, and an application server running J2SDKee + JBOSS.
Can anyone tell me how I access EJBs on the application server running from JSP on the Tomcat-Webserver?
Thanks in advance!
Just like any other client would access EJB's: do a lookup for the home proxy, create/find a remote proxy and invoke. Before invoke do a programmatic JAAS login ( I would assume you want to secure your EJBs).
I would not recommend separating web tier from EJB tier if application performance is a consideration though.
