Hi all, I have some set of classes these classes are to be accessed from a remote machine, Can any one suggest a design for this. What is preferable either RMI or CORBA ? Are there any links for this ?
If the access is to be direct from other Java apps, RMI sounds logical. CORBA gives more flexibility as you can call the classes from non-Java apps as well but at the expense of more expensive infrastructure and more coding effort. EJB is another option, but has the same disadvantages as CORBA.
