General J2EE: How to write an engine ?

  1. How to write an engine ? (1 messages)

    Hi We have a server side component which is widely used by client threads. Clients are NOT connected directly to it since it functions in lower layers of architecture and there are a number of layers above it. My bosss has asked me to re-write this component as an ENGINE. they want it to be always up and running. they don't want to call it by method calls and bring it to memory by every call and then garbage collect it etc... how can we have such a thing ?
  2. Deploy it as a different application on the server and that should take care of it..
