Sorry if I'm asking something obvious here, but I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for yet.
I have a need to build a service that will listen on a particular port and receive incoming data from several non-java applications. I was all set to go off and just write this from scratch, but was wondering if there are already facilities in JBoss to handle this type of work. It seems that JBoss must already have to do this kind of thing. I'm new to JBoss and just may be looking in the wrong place for existing code, or at least examples of how this is currently implemented in JBoss.
We are running JBoss 3.2.5 here.
P.S. Now that I think about it even a thread per connection design is probably sufficient for my needs. Initially we'll have much less than 100 incoming connections.
