Subject RE: Can V in MVC be Swing in Struts?

At the risk of me seeming simple and pointless, can I ask why you want
manually code sending serialized objects over HTTP?

What you're doing is reinventing SOAP and XML-RPC. These technologies are
not that hard to use - especially XML-RPC. There are Java libraries
available that handle all the communications for you and just hand your
code XML docs.

Not to mention debugging the application is much easier if you are using
XML because at least it's readable english -

You may also run the risk that you'll code a whole bunch of stuff this way
and then later you'll be asked to refactor them as web services. 'Which is
probably what you should've done to begin with', is what they'll say.

Of course, I could be way off base. From my viewpoint I don't know what
your requirements are -
