Hi. I'm fairly new to j2ee tech. I'm providing a service through a JBossWS, but I need to initialize the internal state of the object that implements the web service. I've thought to publish a method for triggering initialization from the client side but this "solution?" seems too ugly even for a novice like me :). I'm wondering whether JBossWS tech provides a way of controling startup stuffs, but internally from the service itself. thanks in advance Alex.
