sharing an Axapa connection between Web Service methods ( first post - hi :-) )

Hi -

… I am completely new to AX, but am starting to write some Business Connector web services.

I see existing code that logs into AX for every method (ie getting an “Axapta” instance) - …this seems to be slow.

Does anyone have any comments about the wisdom/risks of sharing a connection across methods (or maybe even doing some pooling)…
