When making multiple web services calls to the same web services server, you can improve the processing by keeping the connection open.

The CALL WEB SERVICE command has a new * parameter, when added to the end of the parameter list, the connection between the Client and the Server is not closed at the end of a call.

CALL WEB SERVICE (accessURL; soapAction; methodName; namespace{; complexType{; *}})

In order to take advantage of this option, the webservices server needs to support keep-alive-connections.
