Exposing SLSBs as web services didn't become a standard until J2EE 1.4/EJB 2.1.
So any existing solution would be vendor specific (I think WebLogic 8 had its own way of doing this).

If your platform doesn't support this then you are pretty much reduced to using a servlet/webapp style web services toolkit like Axis 1.x (I don't think that you could deploy Axis2 in a J2EE 1.3 environment) and defining the web services interface and writing the binding code implementation (in essence an adapter) to the SLSB yourself.

The process of invoking the SLSB would be the same as using the SLSB from a servlet.
