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?
