Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if there was a way to have Multiple Web Service Endpoints (interface and implementation pairs) share one Java Process?

For example: I would have some Java Endpoint Interface called X (which implements the Remote Interface) and another Java Endpoint Interface called Y. If some client calls methods on X and Y, will those two method calls be processed in the same Process? Or will another Process be forked off?

I am using Tomcat 5.5 and Apache Axis 1.2RC2.

Yes - you can have as many service endpoints running within your web server / app server as you like.

Remember, web services (over SOAP/HTTP at least) are just HTTP requests and responses, so being able to service multiple endpoints is just like running multiple Servlets or JSPs within your web container.

I'm not sure about the current version of Axis, but if I were you I'd go with Sun's Web Services developer pack instead, since Axis (at least in the recent past) wasn't compatible with the WS-I standards.

Does anyone know if Axis is WS-I compliant these days??
