Yes, I understand that iDoc doesnt use webservices; but the EWPS webservice uses IDS via message-queues (ewps.config.xml) and iDoc does that too(global.xml).
What I am understanding is will there be an issue if an external application tries to use my workspace through web-service with iDocumaker running at the backend?
Appreciate your quick response.

The message queues provide a decoupled integration between your applications (e.g. iDocumaker and EWPS) and the back-end services, brokered by Docupresentment (IDS). Even though iDocumaker runs on the backend servers, it is still treated as a client to Docupresentment much like EWPS - both use IDS client communication APIs to interact with the message queues. The idea is that many applications (think multiple users of a web application, or multiple users of a thick-client application) are able to interact with the back-end services using the queues without causing overload on the back-end servers.
So, the short answer is that using queues is a way to provide scalable infrastructure that allows many applications to interact with the back-end services. In general, the products (iDocumaker, EWPS, IDS) are configured in such a way as to prevent users from accessing items that are in-use by other users.
If this doesn't adequately answer your question, we'll probably need additional details.
