Hello All,
We have to develop an application which serves both http and non-http clients.For eg. My system basically is a product which serves the request of a client irrespective of http or non-http.
How do I do this in java,I have to serve a web-based client and also a desktop client who may be either a vb,java or a client written in any language.
How do I manage the session for non-http clients.
And also will generic servlet help me acheive this???
