hey, I need my java application to work as a server. I've got all my needed properties in it and I just need to access it's variables and methods by other application. What is the best way to do it?(if there is such a way)
well basically I need it to work as a database of sort where I could change it's certain information through another java application. Is that possible? not sure if it's a web service since I'm not really aware of what web service does.
Does this help:
