To highlight the savings in generated code with JAX-WS 2.0 compared to JAX-RPC 1.1, I ran the WS-I Sample application WSDL files through JAX-RPC's wscompile and JAX-WS's wsimport. The results are very good.
JAX-RPC 1.1 generated 128 files that were 365KB in size.
JAX-WS 2.0 generated only 61 files for a total size of 83KB. That is a 52% reduction in the number of files generated and a 77%...
The JAXB 2.0 and JAX-RPC 2.0 java.net forum has been renamed to JAXB 2.0 and JAX-WS 2.0 to be consistent with the rename of JAX-RPC 2.0 to JAX-WS 2.0. To read about the JAX-RPC 2.0 rename to JAX-WS 2.0 read my blog entry here.
The JAXB and JAX-WS developement teams had worked very hard to release early access 2 of these technologies yesterday. Please download

JAX-WS 2.0 Early Access 2 is now available. This version of JAX-WS provides support for SOAP 1.2, MTOM and Swaref. This is also the first implementation of a dynamic runtime that does not rely on non portable artifacts.
We have removed the wsdeploy tool since we no longer generated non portable artifacts. We have redefined the RI's deployment descriptor used on stand alone servlet containers...
