Hello,

We have an up and running system using EJB on Websphere. A new requirement has come up, requiring us to expose the EJB business layer as a webservice in order to enable another system to use ours.

What are the options available? In view of the experienced folks which approach would be most suited?

One way I believe is to create a wrapper around the EJB and expose this wrapper to SOAP. Any feedback will be most welcome.

Regards,
Saket

Hi
If you mean Session Beans then there are some standard for exposing an stateless bean Endpoint interface , WSAD and RAD do it automatically for you.

But if you wanna expose some entity ? bean operations as a web service then , i think, best way is to wrap then with some session beans.


just my 2 cents.
