Service-oriented architectures utilize loosely coupled services to support the constantly changing requirements of software by assembling services into composite applications. However, there is a tremendous amount of intellectual capital invested in legacy C and C++ applications. Reusing these applications will largely save the original investment. Several excellent projects concentrate on conversion of existing C and C++ applications into web services in a C++ runtime environment. However, in some special scenario, it is an alternative that deploys C/C++ web services in a runtime written in another language such as Java. This paper presents an automatic toolkit for exposing existing C/C++ applications as services which can be deployed in runtime environments written in Java programming language.
