Hi Experts,

I am trying to interface one SmallTalk process with a Java process.

Can you please help me by giving the appropriate JAVA API/class/package to enable this Inter-process communication or Can you provide some JAVA sample code which has ability to do the Inter-process communication.

I need this ASAP.

Thanks,
Venkat

Well... you could...

  • Communicate using the file system. See the Java IO package.
  • Communicate using the network. See the Java networking package.
  • A bit of a stretch, but you could also use a database. See the Java database package.

    Since Sun's mantra has been "the network is the computer" you will find lots of possible communication methods.

    In addition to Henry's suggestions you could:
    communicate using email
    communicate using messaging
    communicate using HTTP requests and the servlet API (SOAP and XML-RPC come to mind)
    and probably a lot more.

    Probably the critical questions have to do with the communication facillities in your SmallTalk installation. If this was my problem I would be searching the smalltalk docs for topics like XML-RPC and SOAP.

    You could use CORBA. Java has built-in CORBA support, and there do exist Smalltalk CORBA implementations.
