Hi Can anybody please tell me the difference between EJB technology and the latest webservices .... Both are meant for distributed computing only ... but what is the major diff between them

Enterprise JavaBeans is first and foremost a component technology while web services are a standard way to expose services. The difference might be subtle but it is there. EJBs can be used to compose applications in a more tightly coupled way, while web services are a larger-grained concept aimed at interoperability. Maybe someone else on this forum has a better explanation of the differences?
