Subject Re: Can I somehow run a java process (application) within the Tomcat java process
Date Mon, 01 May 2000 02:09:01 GMT
I could think of two fairly obvious possibilities:

1) Convert your CORBA application to a servlet (you'd probably want it
to start up when Tomcat starts). This shouldn't be too difficult and
you'd have them both running in the same JVM.

2) Use CORBA to communicate between your JSPs/servlets and the CORBA
app. You could also use RMI for this, but since your application is
already CORBA it might be easier to go that way.
