This is one of those questions that I'm pretty sure I know the answer to, but have to ask anyway because I don't really like the answer!

In WebSphere Portal V6, if I want a portlet service to call an EJB or a Web Service, I'll have to modify wps.war's web.xml to add the references, correct? I know that it is possible to call a Web Service without externalizing the endpoint or credentials, but that isn't really good design in my opinion.

So is that it? If you want to call an EJB or WS, you HAVE to modify wps.war's web.xml? Have people done this and had good/bad experiences? From what I've read, modifying wps.ear isn't forbidden, but it's kind of a "enter at your own risk" decision.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
