Data exchange between Java and non-java apps
Posted on 1998-07-27
I have an application not-written in Java (can be c, c++ or something else) I need to create a Java applet (or application if it's impossible with an applet) that will request username/password from the user. The java app will be called by the non-java application (they're both on the same machine). Once the user entered his data, they need to be passed back to the calling app, and that's where i'm stuck. I'd rather not use a socket, nor a temp file or native code. I thought a pipe stream would be the answer, but then, how to bind the ends of the stream?
