I'm studying for my Universitary thesis an example of integration between 2 systems.
It's a e-commerce site which uses j2ee for displaying products and another legacy system for paying with credit card.
The protocol used to interface with the legacy system is xml-rpc over HTTPS.
I think this is a fine solution for web clients.
Anyway I have to write a solution which is compatible also with a Swing client.....can anyone give me some hints about how to set up correctly this layer ? are there any solution which allow to communicate both from a stand alone client and a Web application ?
I need only to set up an architectural point of view, I don't need to specify third-part products or anything concerned too much with details of implementation.....
Thanks in advance
