if it just publishing the EJB it would be ok but if you use J2EE servcie
like security ect .. you have to map from the webservice security to
J2EE security. Then user has to learn both and write handlers.  

hopefully we can give a tool that make those thing transparent to them.

write a webservice that wrap the EJB. the provider is axis usual
provider, but the webservice java class inside the Axis will find the
EJB and invoke it plus security ect.

This wrapper web service is genarated. By small changes to the generated
web service (plug in a new module to generate different code) this
should be able to run in other JAX-RPC runtimes as well and invoke EJB.

thank for commnets
