I want to know what is the use of JWSDP? Maybe a silly question. I think that JWSDP just contains some JAR files for Web Services, except the JAR files, it also has other use? Why does JWSDP need to integrate with the Web containers like GlassFish?

Thanks a lot!

JWSDP was initially created as a developer add-on to provide support for JAX-RCP and later JAX-WS for various containers.
It has evolved (a while back now) into Metro which is now part of the GlassFish community.

The integration into a runtime like GlassFish brings administration, OSGi-fication, integration with grizzly, testing, management, monitoring, and more.
You could contrast this with the type of integration done in JDK 6 (a subset of Metro in fact) or how Metro is used in WebLogic or other Java EE containers.
