It doesn't.   The Local transport is only for services that can be found on the same bus.
   THAT said, if the two wars end up using the "default" bus, it's possible that they could
find each other.

See above.   But if they are on the same bus, it is configurable as to weather the same thread
is used or if it will pop onto a thread pool.

by using the Object binding or the colocation feature if desired". Please can you explain
the Object binding and how it differs from coloc?

Object Binding + Local transport is CLOSE to using Coloc.  However, coloc  bypasses much of
the interceptor chains whereas Local+Object keeps the interceptor chains in place.   Thus,
if you have particular interceptors that need to run, they may not work as well with the coloc
