Hi :
Could some one tell me what is the purpose of exposing EJBs as webservices ?
I have read much about RPC way of implementing Webservices in Weblogic.

What I donot understand is why epose EJBs as webservices, when you can make a JNDI lookup with the EJB and call it as usual?

I know interoperability is one good reason, but then are there any other PROs for this approach.

Using JNDI will only work for Java clients, as you point out. But is also uses some non-standard ports which you may not want to open up to the world. Web Services require only port 80 (and/or 443), which are usually open already.
