Custom web service based on Alfresco APIs: how to publish

Hi all.

I developed a custom java package for managing Alfresco objects, now I need to develop custom web services that use the previous package classes.

I have the following alternatives:
1) develop the web service and deploy it as a new java project under tomcat web app. As a result, I will have two applications running under the same Tomcat installation: Alfresco and the application ad hoc created for exposing custom web-services;
2) develop the web service and deploy it directly under Alfresco as a new Alfresco web service. In this way my custom project will be encapsulated into Alfresco installation.

I prefer the second solution but I would like hear something about this from the Alfresco engineers and others who have similar experiences. In particular I need a clarification about the steps for deploying a new ws under alfresco.

Any help will be very appreciated.

All the best,
