How do we integrate seam based backing bean/Session beans with webservices. Can we directly call webservices from these bean and if we can do we need to do some special setting other then what we do incase we want to call webservices from spring beans or JSF action / Backing beans.
Invoke web services from beans is simple -- just make a HTTP call? ;) The more complicated task is to expose bean methods as web services. Seam's EJB3 components have the standard EJB WebServices annotation support (in fact, this is how the Seam Remoting does AJAX). Seam also integrates with RESTEasy to support RESTful web services.
