I have developed a “web” application which can be deployed on JBoss but is not aimed to handle http based requests (but ftp requests). This simple application is made from a group of objects which extend the GenericServlet object (not the HttpServlet).
Now I was wondering if I can re-write this application using spring framework mostly to take advantage of spring aop capabilities and also since other (real) web application deployed on the same application server already make use of spring framework throughout.
From my initial research it seems that this is impossible since spring seems to have developed only to handle http requests when used together with an application server. I could be wrong; mostly because my experience with spring is fairly limited! However I am basing my assumptions on some of the tutorials available on the internet.
Thanks and Regards,
