Subject Re: Jaxws's provider's null response behavior
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2011 19:44:44 GMT

This all sounds OK to me.   However, once it's in place on trunk, please ping 
me to let me know and I'll run the TCK against it.   Modifications that affect 
the JAX-WS behavior generally scare me and I like to verify with the TCK if 
possible.  :-)
