JAX-WS update for JDK 7:

JAX-WS 2.2 spec is integrated into JDK7. The first integration of JAX-WS 
2.2 implementation(JAX-WS RI 2.2) was done in b100(around Jul 2010). See 
my blog 

The recent JAX-WS RI 2.2.2 is integrated in b126 and is primarily bug 
fixes in the implementation. The bug fixes are listed here:
http://java.net/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?mode=hide&requestId=10311 <http://java.net/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?mode=hide&requestId=10311>

We need to put few more fixes in JDK7, will do that in the next couple 
of months.

A brief summary of JAX-WS 2.2 features:
JAX-WS 2.2 adds support for Web Services Addressing 1.0 - Metadata 
specification. This enables JAX-WS services & clients to interoperate 
with other BasicProfile 1.2/2.0 implementations easily.

JDK6 has web services runtime but there is no portable way to use it for 
JSR-109 and other deployments. Hence, there is a need for an SPI that 
allows hand-off between a container deployment and a runtime. JAX-WS 2.2 
provides HTTP SPI that allows a deployment to use any available web 
services runtime for HTTP transport. Consider a case when JAX-WS 2.2 is 
integrated in JDK7, Java EE6 web profile vendors can easily support 109 
deployments using the JAX-WS runtime in JDK7.
