Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: design question

  1. design question (1 messages)

    I am supposed to build a web application that will serve as a front end for a network device. The device runs c/c++ code. The web interface needs to store stuff to a light DB and provision the same data to the application on the device. (all the code,webserver,DB are hosted on the device, which is a linux box as of now). I assume having an appserver to run middleware code is an overkill. But without it how can the code running in a web container communicate with the device. Even if we use a standard appserver it can not communicate to an external device without using JDBC or JMS interfaces.. so.. does this lead to a customized middleware requirement? any ideas? suggestions? .. much appreciated.. -V

    If everything is hosted on device with Linux operating system then you are free to use SOAP or simple HTTP to communicate with external appserver. Can you please elaborate your usecase a little more? Sachin
