EJB and C++

Hey All, I have an application set up in JBoss and I need my session beans to make calls to a library of C/C++ functions used for some heavy computation. I've looked around on the web and other postings, but I'm still confused as to the best way to go. I've read that JNI could be the way to go but that it leads to a lot of problems, I've also read that CORBA is an option but it's an old and dying technology that's very difficult to implement. Some have suggested setting up a C/C++ application in a separate process and then passing data between the EJB and C/C++ using sockets or XML-RPC. What is the best way to go? I know each suggestion will have its pros and cons, so I guess i'm looking to find out what are all my options in this case and then what are the strengths and weaknesses of each, and for what situation is a particular solution best suited for.
