Using Servlet Connectivity for BEA Tuxedo


With BEA Jolt servlet connectivity, you can use HTTP servlets to perform server-side Java tasks in response to HTTP requests. Jolt certifies servlet connectivity with the Java Web Server versions 1.1.3 and up, and supports most other standard servlet engines. Using the Jolt session pool classes, a simple HTML client can connect to any Web server that supports generic servlets. Thus, all Jolt transactions are handled by a servlet on the Web server rather than being handled by a client applet or application.

This capability enables HTML clients to invoke BEA Tuxedo services without directly connecting to BEA Tuxedo. HTML clients can instead connect to a Web server, through HTTP, where the BEA Tuxedo service request is executed by a generic servlet. Using a Jolt session, the servlet on the Web server administers the BEA Tuxedo service request by connecting to the BEA Tuxedo Server through the Jolt Server Handler (JSH) or the Jolt Server Listener (JSL), which then makes the BEA Tuxedo service request. This capability allows many types of HTML clients to make remote BEA Tuxedo service requests. All Jolt transactions are handled on the server side without requiring any change to the original HTML client. Thus, HTML clients are allowed to be very simple and require little maintenance.
