EJB Restrictions + Architecture

My company is trying to decide whether to use EJBs for our application.
My question is, can EJB be used in a "multicast" message environment?

Meaning: If I have a application sending and receiving multicast messages, is it "legal" to
let an EJB recieve that message, process it, and then send it out on the multicast network?
I have seen the restriction of receiving messages from a socket connection, but I didn't know if
anyone else has run into this limitation.

My solution would be create a small application to handle the multicast messages and just forward them to the EJB framework..... Is this a viable solution?

Please give me all the input you can

Yes you can. WebLogic JMS service for example, supports multicasting. You can read this article:

I agree. Here's the link:
