In a recent post I described how we can use the EJB Binding in SOA Suite 11g PS2 to invoke a SOA Composite application through RMI as a remote EJB. This interaction can be fully based on Java interfaces – no WSDL or XML required. However convenient that is, I have not yet been able to make it work for complex arguments or return parameters: methods that use simple types work fine, but using custom POJOs as input or return value did not result in a properly exposed EJB (even though deployment seems successful).
There is another way to invoke a SOA Composite as EJB via RMI. This other way is through the binding.adf binding type. The main difference with the inbound EJB binding is that we communicate in terms of XML (over RMI) with the SOA Suite’s generic Client API – and not directly to a service specific EJB. I was able to get this to work thanks to articles by Edwin Biemond (http://biemond.blogspot.com/2009/11/invoking-soa-suite-11g-service-from.html) and Changjae Lee (http://blogs.oracle.com/jaylee/2009/08/invoking_composite_from_javajs.html). They laid the foundation – and I adapted it for SOA Suite 11g R1 PS2.
