Re: Please help me on Java Client/Server

if you want an app that runs on both java and bb10 you will have to use webworks/html5.

regarding networking, all depends on what you want to do.
you could use a json webservice for example, provides a nice abstraction layer.
for more complex tasks maybe soap (mainly due to class generation on both sides), for simpler tasks a plain socket may be enough.
feel free to press the like button on the right side to thank the user that helped you.
please mark posts as solved if you found a solution.
