The runtime support is relatively trivial to port from XFire. The part that
concerns me more is the tooling as I'm not familiar with the tooling APIs at
all :-)

JSR 311 support would be nice, but quite a bit of work.

The big ones that I see are: WS-SecureConversation, WS-Trust and
WS-SecurityPolicy. They're a bit of work though. I've started some work
locally on these, but haven't gotten that for - I'm more stuck in the joys
of getting JAXB and WS-SecurityPolicy to play well with our existing
generated classes for WS-Policy.

As I've hinted at before I think JAX-WS support should be our feature
whereby we determine when we release. I.e. once we pass the TCK, lets do a
release. If other features aren't done, we can knock off future releases
quickly as those features are completed. We might even make it out of the
incubator by then, so it'd be much faster :-) If we keep to the frequent
release schedule, this should help us get out bug fixes faster and generate
more project publicity as well.
