The specs of my app specify that an application which is conversing with a dedicated connection is running. This app lives in the JVM and is constantly bridging information from, in my case, Jabber to a database. However, there may be times when the application can be invoked via a servlet.
The application has ten threads whose mission is to write back to Jabber, and one thread which listens messages being sent by Jabber. Is it possible for a servlet to invoke a method of a class which is currently being run. All synchronization issues will handled correctly.
