The documentation/samples included with JAX-WS that is distributed on describes how to use JAX-WS to develop and deploy your webservices endpoints in a servlet container. The samples discussed in this document and available as part of JAX-WS distribution are tested to work on Glassfish and on Apache Tomcat. The deployment is demonstrated using JAX-WS RI specific proprietary deployment descriptor sun-jaxws.xml. 

If you wish to use JAX-WS in a Java EE container in a portable manner (using JSR 109 deployment descriptors), please refer to the Java EE 5 or Glassfish documentation/samples. The majority of the documentation included with JAX-WS is valid with Java EE 5 as well.
