Why is WebService interface limited only to Stateless session bean and cannot be applied to Stateful Session bean. EJB In Action states that since SOAP [Web service uses SOAP] is a stateless protocol, Stateful session bean cannot be exposed via Web service interface.
1) Can anyone please elaborate more on this.
2) I know i could have tried, But what happens if there is a web service business interface for stateful session bean? Will the bean be still deployed? And what happens if its invoked via WS interface?
