Apologies if this is a FAQ...couldn't find anything, hence this post.
I am trying to write a 'decorator' for an ancient C/plain-sockets-based Unix application.
Think of the decorator as a filter/proxy that also munges incoming/outgoing data.
The question is: how to do this in spring.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
The underlying server will be JBoss.
