I wish to use Web Services to call methods to alter extensions within an asterisk server.
The lightstreamer runs a java implementation to monitor and interface with the asterisk server through the metadata adapter. The java code can then publish events of interest to the data adapter, and interact with the asterisk server.

What I would like to know is the following:
1) Is there a way to write some simple web services to alter the asterisk-engine effectively within lightstreamer? I was wondering if it is possible to use a second metadata adapter to speak to the ls-metadata/asterisk-engine adapter?

2)If I use the SendMessage call instead of a separate WSDL defined web service, could I still be considered to be using a web service? (Considering how ultimately it is using XML/HTTP (not sure if it is using SOAP)).
