I'm not sure about the JNDI binding either. I am assuming that you 
intend to look up the (local) home interface in JNDI and invoke using 
that; however, I do not believe this will work as is as there is a need 
to differentiate between an interface-based invocation and a 
service-endpoint invocation (see e.g. the operation table on page 100 of 
the EJB2.1 spec).

It would be possible for the 109 implementation to create the 
appropriate EJBInvocation directly but that couples the web service 
proxy to the EJB impl which is probably not a good thing. I think a 
better alternative would be to have the EJBContainer create a new 
EJBClientContainer that would handle a web service request from any 109 
impl. Sound feasible?
