Paul Hammant's Blog: AltRMI - Transport over servlet
This is proving difficult to implement. I'm using Jetty in the test-first development of this transport and Jetty is really sweet. The trouble is that URLConnection used on the client side only allows one directional traffic, and the HTTP protocol does not like to have duplex traffic. There are two HTTPClient utilities out there. One in Apache commons and one at http://www.innovation.ch/java/HTTPClient/ . I'm not sure which is dominant. The Apache one uses CommonsLogging (which I am ideologically opposed to - more later). More work to do I guess.
