check this question: 21. You are the contract software developer for an on-line store that sells antiques and furniture. Your client wants to sell their goods on a third-party auction site, eBuyIt! The IT department at eBuyIt! requires you to develop an interface to your store front software using web services. Which technology can be used to create this integration interface?
JNDI JDBC JAX-RPC JavaMail i thought JNDI was correct answer but i am surprised javamail is the right answEr.how is it that we can use javamail to develop an interface using web services.i suppose javamail was for e-mails etc.can you explain it?
Could you quote your source? I'm not sure how/why you would use Javamail... seems like a typo in whatever you're reading to me.
Although if you're quoting it from Sun... sure, of course they might recommend such a solution... no one would do it that way, but being the authors of javamail, they might be a little subjective. [ July 27, 2008: Message edited by: Scott Selikoff ]
I think what we're all surprised about is that Sun recommends Javamail as a general-purpose messaging tool for an enterprise application. In practice, you'd use a web service technology (such as jax-ws) or a JMS messaging service. What sun seems to be implying is that you can use Javamail instead of JMS, which to me is a little odd.
