Hi guys,

I have a gps/gprs device that send a string to IP:PORT through a gprs connection, so I don't know what is the best way to receive the data in a web app.
My app already works with cell phones, I receive the data in a Servlet, but I'd like to work with embbedable gps devices.
It's possible implement a web service? or should I implement a server socket?

I am new to gps/gprs technology, but I was assigned a project that requires gps/gprs. Specifically, I have a server, which is supposed to receive gps data transmitted by a gprs module. Any idea how to do it? Would you minding sharing your source code for this purpose?
