JBossWS towards JBoss AS 7.1.0

It's not hard to guess, the JBossWS team is currently working on the webservices features for the future JBoss Application Server 7.1.0.

With one of the major focuses being on the webservices part of the full JavaEE 6 certification requirements, we're currently restoring the still missing pieces in the JBossWS - JBoss AS7 integration.
Yesterday's betas of both Native and Apache CXF integration stacks mark another milestone in the afore mentioned process and bring back @WebServiceRef support and some JAXRPC functionalities on AS7.

Have a look at the release notes [1][2] for the more details and feel free to give the betas a try, feedback is welcome as usual!

Hi Ken,
the binary and source distributions will be built and added to the download page at jboss.org/jbossws once we reach at least CR level, which should be quite soon btw.
Beta releases come with the artifacts on maven repo only.
The AS7 upstream is usually updated with the latest beta release as soon as it's available. In any case, you can install the new beta version to your (former) application server by checking out the beta release tag from SVN and running ant deploy-jbossXYZ there (see the doc at http://community.jboss.org/wiki/JBossWS )
