That question is unanswerable, since every vendor has a slightly
different definition of what "Web Services" means. Some people would say
that the very act of exposing an API via XML constitutes a Web Services

That's an implementation detail. The short answer is no, you shouldn't
have to ... last time I checked, the Apache SOAP toolkit
(http://xml.apache.org/soap/index.html) worked without message driven
beans ... but you still had to "publish a SOAP service." What exactly is
the problem you are trying to avoid? Is it a performance issue?
