By default, no.  This is an issue with the JAX-WS spec as the request 
context is per-proxy so if you use the context for anything, it's not 
thread safe.   If you DON'T use the request context, it is threadsafe.

In CXF, the response context is always thread local, so that is safe.

With 2.0.6 and 2.1, we provide a property that you can set on the proxy 
to change the request context to a thread local.   If you do:

   "thread.local.request.context", Boolean.TRUE);

Then the NEXT call to getRequestContext() will flip it to a ThreadLocal 
and it would be completely threadsafe except for sessions which are 
always on a per-proxy basis.
