Hi Everyone,

We're running Liferay 5.2.3EE on Tomcat 6.0. I need to create some SOAP based web services that will be consumed by .Net clients and ADFS. I've used ServiceBuilder to generate some web service code, but I need some things that I can't get using a standard web service, namely, some data about the user invoking the service. So, I'm looking into using a portlet and exposing it as a web service. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any documentation on how to expose a portlet as a web service inside the liferay environment. Can someone point me to some documentation or otherwise explain the process of exposing a portlet as a web service? Assuming that it's technically feasible, or course. If not, I'll have to try and find another way around the limitation.

Thanks,
Alex
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
