Is it possible? When developing web services based on SOAP one needs to go through a web server. I am not sure about .NET remoting? The examples I have seen give an URL like http://localhost:8000/SomeServer/SomeRemotingClass
etc. to specifiy where the objects are.
The thing is that I am about to design a distributed system in which there is a central unit which is going to be a web service, and this web service is going to initiate jobs on different machines. However, these machines have different platforms, and I cannot expect web servers to be running on these machines.
I would like to be able to make simple servers for these machines running both Linux
which can communicate with some client enabled by the web service. E.g. implemented in Perl for Linux
and .NET for Windows
, og Java
The web service is going to run on a .NET enabled machine, so I thought that I would develop the client part (the part that communicates with the servers) using .NET remoting, but in order to get interoperability I guess I need SOAP? and if I cannot make .NET remoting with SOAP work without a web server this solution is on good.
