Java 6 claims support for JAX-WS. But JAX-WS bundled with java is missing WSServletContextListener and WSServlet classes which are required for deploying the webservice on a servlet container. Using Java 6, the only way we can deploy the webservice is by using Endpoint API. This Endpoint API can deploy the webservice only to the light weight http server bundled with Java and I think this server is just for testing purpose and not meant for production use.

What is the motivation of bundling JAX-WS with java, if all we can do with it is to deploy a webservice to a test bed server.
