JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 is a Web Services framework that provides tools and infrastructure to develop Web Services solutions for the end users and middleware developers.
2. Features in this release
This release brings in the highly pluggable framework through abstractions such as Tube and Message. Refer to the latest architecture document . This architecture document is a glorified javadoc which includes all the JAX-WS RI specific APIs. JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 has many bug fixes made for interoperability with .NET 3.0. This is made mostly possible due to WSIT, which uses JAX-WS plugabble architecture to plug in support for WS-Metadata, WS-Policy, WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Transaction, WS-SecureConversation and WS-Security.
If you wish to use JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 in a Java EE container in a Java EE portable manner you need to use the standard Java EE 5 deployment descriptor; 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.
3. Online Documentation
The documentation for JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 as well as the sample applications will be periodically updated in the JAX-WS project.
The architecture document describing the latest JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 can be found here .

'$ANT_HOME/bin/ant install'to install JAX-WS RIjar on the applciation servers - Glassfish v1/v2 or Sun One AS 9.x
If you intend to only invoke an already existing Web service, then alternatively you can use the
wsgen scripts in the
bin directory of the JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 bundle.
6. Running on top of JDK 6
JDK 6 includes JAX-WS 2.0 and JAXB 2.0 API and RI. JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 includes newer and enhanced APIs of JAX-WS/JAXB 2.0. In order to run JAX-WS RI 2.1.3 you would need to put jaxws-api.jar, jaxb-api.jar, jsr173_api.jar and saaj-api.jar.
For details see
Endorsed Directory Mechanism. Above, JAXWS_HOMEpoints to the root directory of the extracted JAX-WS RIbundle. JDK6_HOME points to JDK 6 installation directory.
7. Jar dependency
|Runtime Jars||FastInfoset.jar, activation.jar, http.jar, jaxb-api.jar, jaxb-impl.jar, jaxws-api.jar, jaxws-rt.jar, jsr173_api.jar, jsr181-api.jar, jsr250-api.jar, mimepull.jar, resolver.jar, saaj-api.jar, saaj-impl.jar, sjsxp.jar, stax-ex.jar, streambuffer.jar|
|Tooltime Jars||All the runtime jars + jaxb-xjc.jar, jaxws-tools.jar|
java.util.Collectionclasses cannot be used with rpc/literal or document/literal BARE style due to a limitation in JAXB. However, they do work in the default document/literal WRAPPED style.
