I am maintaining an application for a client that uses "Mind Electric Glue" (now known as WebMethods Glue
) and because of a few issues I would like to find anyone with access to the code of the "the free unsupported "Standard" version", as it was known back then. I tried looking for this at WebMethods, but it trying to find anything useful to the developer seems to be a lost cause.
Failing that I would be happy to find an equivalent, but current solution. The needs are:
- remote method invocation
- direct connection from client to server (no need of a discovery server)
- Can be Java centric,
- light weight, ie enough for communicating between a client and a server using standard Java
- connection-less, possibly using HTTP, so it can tolerate dropped connections
In the meantime, I am going to look to what extent the java.lang.reflect.Proxy class can serve as a basis.
