What are the advantages and disadvantages of using EJBs for a new web services project that doesn't need to make use of pre-existing EJBs? I am not that knowledgable of EJBs but I've been told by several collegues to stay away from them. I understand the argument for using EJB-based web services when there is an already existing application architecture based on an EJB architecture. But for a totally new web services project, why would I want to use EJBs?

Good question, I don't have any good reasons, maybe someone else can provide some.
