I try to create the web services in WSAD 5 based on an stateless session bean through the web services wizard. When I look into the new created router web project's web.xml, I encounter a question:

1) how does the the router servlet know where to forward the soap request, the servlet class is a common ibm class.

2) when I try to modify the servletname in the web.xml (I modified it in pair, both in servlet definition and servlet mapping), it turns out that the router servlet stop working.

So I assume that there may be a mapping between the router servlet name and the ejb name or similar info, but I just can't find out.

Anybody has an idea about this, thanks in advance.

that is really tricky.

I agree with you on the connection pool question,

but for heap size question, the WAS startup shouldn't be affected by setting the minimum heap size equal to maximum heap size, right ?

What BEST describes setting the 'Minimum Heap Size' close to or equal to the 'Maximum Heap Size'?

A. High performance web applications waste more processing power on low performance functions.

B. Low performance web applications spend more processing power than necessary on low performance functions.

C. Can improve WebSphere Application Server start up.

D. Garbage collection cycles are more frequent that can affect performance.

I think should be D, but some ppl with C

B. Whenever the application requires Java Transaction API (JTA) transactions within the WebSphere Application Server.
