Hi Sean,
up to now, integrations JAX-WS > JDK haven't been done on regular basis, 
just when bug fixes were required, for current JDK development version 
it was time to time - 2x or 3x during a year (?) ...

For future, we would like make it on regular basis for development 
version JAX-WS trunk/Jdk8 - let's say once or twice (?) a month, for 
other jdk version it would be same as now, only up on request ...

How to proceed with this issue depends on how critical is it - we can 
integrate that first on our side and later (one week delay) deliver jdk 
patch or, if it is something critical, we can push it simultaneously 
into both codebasis. We definitely prefer the first option.
