Interacting with the J2EE container in WASInteraction with a container is limited to the following aspects...
- Using the appserver administrative console to define Web services to WAS. This task is described in Using the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) and WSIF system management and administration. As part of the definition of a service, the administrator might define a "preferred port".
- Using the Web Services Invocation Framework (WSIF) to make log and trace calls to the JRAS services in WAS, as described in Trace and logging for WSIF.
- Using WSIF providers to access J2EE services. For example using the EJB provider to access the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) and make calls to remote enterprise beans.
- Using WSIF to wrap the use of container services so that, when WSIF is run in an unmanaged (thin) environment, the operation can succeed.
