Servlet, RMI, CORBA - which onen to choose
Posted on 1998-05-07
I am having trouble figuring out which solution model to choose for my next project. Here's the scene:
I have a webserver, which contains a database (these might reside on another server). From an applet (or HTML document) I want to do a query against the database, and present the result as a HTML page. That's all...
The server is running UNIX, and I don't if it is servlet enabled.
I've been reading some postings here and other places. There are several ways to do this, right?
1) Use an servlet to pass on the query to the database and generate the HTML file to send back to the client's browser.
2) Use RMI to call a remote method which do the same as above.
3) Use CORBA to invoke an object on the server
Which one to choose? Why? and where can I find more info?
Thanx in advance
