The current connector for accepting request to our existing system is written in C language,we had build a ".so" file by compiling c program using MF cobol.
-Cobol application calls this ".so" files and passes the required buffer.The current data structure in our application is simple string.
C Connector receives data from cobol and publish it to java program
-Now we are getting request from other modules in our organisation which are written in J2ee, PHP they want to send data through our connector.(We will define the data structure whether they should use soap or xml).
Could some one guide me what are the possible way I can go about it,How can I replace C connector by java program which can receive xml messages and parse it to string.also is there any possibility that I can use simple java program to send the xml
message from application to our system.
Any sample program for learning will be helpful.
Thanks in advance.
