I have a requirement to build Java to Fortran interface. Java (J2E) runs on a machine with Websphere and on another machine I have Fortran programs.
To make the Fortran call, I am trying to develop C++ wrapper. So, the Java calls C++ which calls Fortran program. The result of Fortran program returned back to Java via C++.
Now, the question is:
=> Is is possible to develop C++ alone with some kind of web service? Or does this kind of web service require any additional softwware (like application server, engines, etc)?
=> Any better ways using C++, other than web service, to make this work?
thanks for your inputs.
C++ can pretty much be used to do anything, but it sucks at "gluing" other languages together. You'd be better off using almost anything.
