Intercommunication process between JAVA and REBOL

 [1/5] from: jchapdelaine::datachest::com at: 20-Apr-2001 12:21


Hello, * The Context * Our company was founded in 1998 in order to develop a new method of providing integrated global content and data to researchers, software applications and other users looking for Data sources on Chemicals within the context of Health, Environment, Safety and Transportation. The repository also includes hazardous and controlled substance information, lists relating to regulatory reporting and compliance management, and data on other relevant topics. In order to maintain full cross-platform compatibility, to permit users to access the application without having to install any software, and to conform to industry standards, we decided to implement our Online application as a browser-based Web application using the Java programming language. * Our Objective * Data Integration is one of the most important steps to making the DataCHEST Online application as useful and powerful as possible. It is a complex process that is partly a science and partly an art. DataCHEST has developed a series of sophisticated tools, which assist and automate the integration process to a large degree. We intent to replace these tools by REBOL Technology as a service provider to perform all data parsing and transformation. So, in this context, we would like to get some clues regarding the best way to communicate between JAVA and REBOL. Ideally, the solution should be platform-independent. We would like to get the capicity to move the REBOL component on a Sun Servers. Thanks. Jeannot Chapdelaine http://www.datachest.com

Jeannot, I have been working with REBOL and Java for the last 6 months. In our current implementation REBOL talks to Java via XML. I am beginning to work on closer integration between REBOL and Java. I would like to talk with you about possible collaboration. Sincerely, David Vydra 510-465-6621 www.vydra.net --- Jeannot Chapdelaine <[jchapdelaine--datachest--com]> wrote:

David, Thanks for your quick answer. Like you, we are looking to communicate through XML between Java and REBOL. But I would like to know more ("UNDER THE HOOD") regarding the implementation of this communication process (Networking protocols, ...). If you do not mind, I will give you a BUZZ on Monday.

One of our Rebol/CGI apps submits XML to a servlet. Obviously, REBOL and Java can talk using sockets. I have also been able to call REBOL from java and get response via stout. I am interested in getting Java and REBOL talking using native REBOL blocks and bypass XML entirely. dv ===== please reply to: [david--vydra--net]
