IMO it's better to use JSR-356 a.k.a "Java API for WebSocket" to
define server/client WebSocket endpoints so that they can be deploy on
WebSocket supported containers such as Tomcat or can use framework
like Tyrus to run through standalone Axis2 server. Please note
supporting to WebSocket containers is equally important as supporting
to standalone server you may develop this as two modules so that
standalone server module will use only required.

I haven't use Atmosphere so I can't compare it with Tyrus but AFAIK
Atmosphere still depends on their proprietary annotations instead of
JSR-356 so I would much prefer for Tyrus here.

BTW, have you create JIRA issue for this ?
