[Rd] IPC

Hi, I need to somehow make R communicate with another remote JAVA process which provides compute services. I have control over the communications protocol, but I would like to keep it to a standardised protocol, such as SOAP, CORBA, etc.

What I would like to know is, what do other people use to do this? The nature of the communications will be low bandwidth procedure calls, with little data. (The data is stored in a DBMS). To date I have tried the RCORBA and SSOAP packages. Corba I couldn't get to compile, and soap I couldn't get to talk properly to soapanywhere (the embedded soap implementation I am trialing).

I'm sure with persistence I can get both working, but I would like to hear others experiences before I invest the time.

Thank you for your time.
