in EJB3 we know how to create a webservice (server) interface out of a session bean.
This has been discussed and published several times and -to my mind- it is perfectly
But how to do the integration of an webservice client access in your application,
that is talking to another server? The connection should work similar as i would
code it using an outbound-JCA or a simple JDBC access.
I would expect a managed connection or better a pool of already established
connection to a server, in order to incorporated that connection in the EJB-way
+ connection management
+ avoiding starving TCP/IP Connections
+ timeout handling,
+ transaction management
+ deposit connection information(like target-URL) as a datasource
How is this managed in the JEE standard ?
Does anybody know, how JBoss or Webshere7 does manage this ?
