Server to Server communication (JDENET?)


Well Known Member
I have a fairly generic question: is it possible to have JDE communicate with another server by defining the IP-Port? The server I need to communicate with is NOT a JDE server, rather it will be running a windows service that will respond to the request and perform other actions.

If so, can you help me by referencing some examples or other documentation on how to do this?

Theoretically yes, although probably NOT with any type of JDENET calls if this is a NON JDE server and you simple want to open a socket connection. It really probably depends on the nature of the service on the non-jde server that you are trying to call. In general, if I was trying to do something like this I would probably do this with a consumer BSSV. You will have a lot more libraries/tools etc. to open a socket connection in Java. There are several ways you could go about doing this with a C BSFN as well, but just of the top of my head I would think it would be easier in Java.
