Should be.

1. Unlike other Remoting transports, which expect to send and receive serialized Remoting objects, the http transport is able to send and receive Strings.  So I guess you could use HTTPClient to communicate with org.jboss.remoting.transport.coyote.CoyoteInvoker, which is the server side of the Remoting HTTP transport.  Never tried it, though.

2. If you just send application strings back and forth, you wouldn't have access to Remoting facilities like connection monitoring.  An alternative to using a "raw" HTTPClient would be to override the code in org.jboss.remoting.transport.http.HTTPClientInvoker that uses java.net.HttpURLConnection with code that uses HTTPClient.  In effect you would be creating your own transport.  For more information about how to do that, see Remoting Guide 2.4.0.GA "Chapter 6. Adding a New Transport" (http://www.jboss.org/jbossremoting/docs/guide/2.4/html/index.html).
