Hi Magnus,

So you're using JCA.

Question 1: Could I ( and should I) implement a Java Connector solution

MINA will fit perfectly to your use case IMHO.  You can also use just plain
sockets, but I think using MINA will be better for the maintainability of
your application.

It's not overkill at all for you to use MINA.  MINA is designed to fit both
with simplistic and with complex protocols.  If you found it is not, please
let us know.  We're always open for criticism. :)

what we call human nature is actually human habit
