Just new to web service. I have a servlet web application, wondering if I can apply web service on it ? Can I use both web service and struts ? do I have to write code in a completely different way or can I just simply convert to web service ?
A web service application can live happily on the same server as JSP, servlets, and so forth (if thats what you are asking.) You will have to write code to a particular toolkit library, such as AXIS, but you end up with servlets. Bill

So, assuming so far I have servlet, jsp, and some business Action classes. Does it make sense to say that most probably I should convert the "business action classes" part into web service ?

People expose "business action classes" as web services if there is a need to let other people access them directly. It would be entirely reasonable to have the same basic functionality exposed as both HTML/servlet/jsp web pages and as XML based web services. Thats what Google and Amazon do after all. Bill
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
