Just FYI:  with CXF being a standalone JAX-WS provider, JSR-109 stuff  
is not required to be supported.   For example, we don't support  
injecting any @WebServiceRef things in at all at this point either.    
That's a J2EE thing.     I don't think any of us really have delved  
into JSR109 as it pertains to CXF only.   I know the Geronimo folks  
obviously have, but it's part of the web service deployer stuff, not  
something ingrained into CXF.

Thus, in short, I DOUBT the current stuff in CXF will look in WEB-INF/ 
wsdl if you just specify a wsdlLocation of "foo.wsdl".   The JAX-WS  
spec for standalone doesn't require it.   I could be wrong though.   
With all the work Jarek and Jeff did for Geronimo, some of it might  
have been pushed into CXF.


There are a couple things in JSR-109 that don't match
