I think the alpha release of Globus3 has classes for deploying their OGSA
grid services without a servlet engine. I assume their grid services subsume
SOAP web services, so maybe their stuff qualifies as well. Not sure.

- Killdara Vitiris

As far as I know all other implementations require you to deploy in a
