Bridge C# and Java

I have to develop a distributed application using C# and Java. In the final application I have to send many events between the Java and C# components.

Furthermore, I don't have a clue of distributed computing/applications.

Could you provide some technologies which could be suitable against this background?

Their names or some buzzwords are enough, I can look them up by myself. I just need a starting point.

Best regards,

Why do you have to develop a distributed application?

Welcome to JavaRanch!

As I think you know, there are a number of choices available. Depending on your requirements, you might exchange XML or other content via HTTP ("web services", "SOAP"), or use a true distributed object system like CORBA, or some kind of messaging middleware. Which you choose would depend on what expertise you (or your team-mates) have, and whether the C# and Java components are really peers, or instead one has to pull or broadcast information while the other serves or receives it.
