Running JBoss 5.0.1 GA with the JBoss native WS stack.
I am running a simple WS service, all it does is echo back the string that was sent from the client application. The response time of the web service averages about 110 msec. A simple Java app will respond in < 5-10 msec. I would appear that there is > 100 msec of overhead with the Web Service. This seems hard to believe.
I assume that there is some sort of polling or other event-waiting processes that are involved. Are there configuration setting that can reduce this overhead? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
My bad, I was measuring the WebService initialization time. As it turns out, the actual service response time is much shorter.
