Hi All,
I'm trying J2EE connector architecture on J2EE 1.4 Application server. Is it possible to register resource adapter as webservice? Also I'm using a session bean to use the resource adapter. How to register EJBs as webservice on J2EE 1.4 application server?
Thanks in advance for your support.

Hello Nilesh,
First of all, I'll have to ask you to add a last name into your display name -- it's required by the naming policy.
Regarding your questions,
1) I'm not aware of such a feature (exposing a connector as a web service)
2) I'd suggest leaning on your particular application server's documentation on how to expose an EJB as a web service.

In J2EE 1.4 only Stateless Session beans and Java Beans (plain old Java classes) can be deployed as Web Services.
I wouldn't recommend using a JCA adapter as a Web Service anyway -- too fine a granularity.
