Support for java.net in the Adaptive Server allows you to create client-side Java networking applications within the server. You can create a network Java client application in the Adaptive Server that connects to any server, which in effect enables Adaptive Server to function as a client to external servers. See“Example usage”.
You can use java.net for many purposes:
Download documents from any URL address on the Internet.
Send e-mail messages from inside the server.
Connect to an external server to save a document and perform file functions: saving a document, editing a document, and so forth.
Access documents using XML.
