The Client Code Comparison

Gopalan Suresh Raj

Implementing the MTS/EJB Client

Both the EJB and MTS clients have been implemented using Java code using the Visual J++ version 6.0 compiler.

MTS Client - The MTS client shown below calls into the MTS server object's methods by first acquiring a pointer to the server object. The new keyword here instantiates the bank.Checking MTS Server object. This leads the Microsoft JVM to use the CLSID to make a CoCreateInstance() call. The IUnknown pointer returned by CoCreateInstance() is then cast to bank.IChecking, as shown below.

EJB Client - The EJB client shown below calls into the EJB server object's methods by first acquiring a pointer to the server object. The client first uses JNDI to get a reference to the EJB component's home interface. It then uses this reference to create an instance of the EJB component and holds on to this reference when calling into the component methods.
