    Default Communication between two web applications

    Generally a web service talks to a remote database to fetch required data. In my case, I have a web service that gets the data from another web application (given the url). Both are java based applications. How do I communicate with the remote web application ? via HttpUrlConnection? I need to send JSON Objects and receive JSON Arrays. Are there any code examples that I can refer to? Please guide me.

    Default Re: Communication between two web applications

    One way to communicate is through the ServletContext of different web applications.Firstly you will have to get the ServletContext of different web applications.You can get the ServletContext of another web application by using this.getServletContext().getContext(uripath),and use this ServletContext which is of another web application to share objects and this way you will be able to communicate through them. There may be more and better ways to do this,I am just specifying one.
