Hi all,

I am very new to webservices and want to know if any method in a class can be exposed as a webservice? What are the restrictions? What are the requirements for a method to be eligible for exposure as a webservice?

Thanks,
S Hasan.

You cant specifically expose a method in a class as a web-service. However what you can do is define an interface with the method that you want to expose and then have an implementation class as a JSE (JAX-RPC Service Endpoint). Hope this helps.

ok... but are there any restrictions for the signature of the method.... For example, the method has to be public, cant have these return types or can have only these paramters???

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
S Hasan.

There are some rules that need to followed while declaring a JAX-RPC Service Endpoint. Please refer to JAX-RPC Notes. Scroll down till the title JAX-PRC Service Endpoint (JSE)
