JBossWS 3.4.0.CR1 is out!

I'm happy to announce that the first candidate release of JBossWS 3.4.0 has just been released, including JBossWS-CXF (release notes) and JBossWS-Native (release notes) stacks.

This is a major step forward in the direction of JavaEE 6 compliance. While the current release supports JAXWS 2.2 (JSR 224) and most of the additions in JSR 109 v.1.3, we're targetting passing all the webservice related modules of JavaEE 6 CTS TCK with the final 3.4.0 release.

JBossWS-CXF 3.4.0.CR1 includes the recently released Apache CXF 2.3.0, which in turn comes with multiple major new features (as well as bug fixes).

Finally, the Maven plugin for the JBossWS JAXWS tools (wsconsume / wsprovide) has also been released in a new 1.0.1.GA version, which supports the SPI of the latest available 3.4.0.CR1 stacks and adds a fork mode option for effectively using the tools with JAXWS 2.2.

The Maven artifacts for all the released components are available on the JBoss public repository; please give them a try!
