Subject Re: Embedded Tomcat and application communication
Date Tue, 23 Jan 2007 10:29:20 GMT
Oh no, I mean the exact opposite :)

| Application	|
|		|
|Embedded TC	|

The application I am writing this for is a server daemon which has a cli
that enables the user to issue commands to it once it's up and running.
What I want, is to use Tomcat to serve a page that will present the user
with a friendlier way to issue these commands to the app. Since there is
no ready way for embedded Tomcat to "communicate" with the host
application that launched it, I assume that the best way is to do this
via localhost RMI calls from Tomcat to the host application
