RMI and IIOP callback

Hi all
As far as I know it's possible to do RMI callback to a client which register to the application server.
Is it possible also in IIOP connection to the application server ? I am using IIOP casue the client is written in C/C++.

  Thanks

 I am afraid not with pure RMI over IIOP. You should use CORBA for that.

If the client is written in C/C++ probably it should use CORBA. so it that case it will ba able to receive callback?

Does java client using pure RMI/IIOP can ?

  Yes you can use callbacks with CORBA if one of the parts (clieant or server) is Java. Take a look at this link: http://java.sun.com/developer/qow//archive/18/

  You can. The EJB architecture utilizes callbacks and EJBs can do client callsbacks. Communication between standalone clients and EJBs is being done over RMI-IIOP. The thing is that I do not know how complicated it will be. Usually if a clients wants to be called back (from an EJB) the client should create an RMI object and will pass it as reference to the EJB. Then theEJB can use the RMI reference to call the client back.

  Not sure how compilcated this will be to implement in your application.
