The arising idea is that ease of use comes from tools. You take all the
work you did to implement J2EE last year (you DID implement J2EE last
year, right?) and push a button and a web service comes out. Somehow,
magically, you get all of the putative benefits of web services, and all
of the putative benefits of J2EE and no extra work. Easy!
