Communication between JAXRPC services on same machine

Consider multiple JAXRPC web services deployed on the same machine. Now one or more of the services deployed might need to invoke another JAXRPC service on the same machine. In this scenario, does the communication between the web services use SOAP/HTTP (and the associated overhead for marshalling/unmarshalling) for the RPC call, or would the services be smart enough to "bypass" this layer and talk straight to each other through their APIs?
If they do use SOAP/HTTP, is there a way to configure them differently or deploy the services differently?
