    Which Technologies to use??

    989781
      I am building a project which requires a connection of Android App(Application Client) to a Java EE Server using Wifi. How can this connection be established and Which Java EE6 technologies(such as EJB,Servelets etc.) I need to learn to implement this??
      I am new to Java EE

          You can use webservices JAX-WS or JAX-RS depending on the nature of the EE service you are calling.

            Thanks,
            But is it necessary to use any web services?
            I simply want to send data from server to Application Client(Android) using Enterprise Beans
            Here Only Application Tier and Bussiness Tiers are involved?
            So Is it necessary to use Web Services???
            The application client will be local access for the Server

                You need an integration solution and some of your options are RMI, JMS, webservices and websockets. The languages you are integrating are similar but not identical so I would use webservices. Websockets are probably better but there are not enough stable EE implementations yet (maybe next servlet spec will add them).

                What do you mean by "The application client will be local access for the Server"? Are they running off the same virtual machine?
