I just did a war of a "simple" CXF project and the war was 5.9MB in size.   
However, if you use Java 6, you can drop it down by at least another MB by 
removing jars that are available in Java6 (more of the api jars, saaj, jaxb, 
etc...).     For some limitted cases where spring is needed, you could drop 
another 1.5MB or so by removing spring.   I don't really recommend that 

That said, if you start going into more advanced things like WS-RM, 
WS-Security, JAX-RS,  etc..., you'll need to start adding more of the modules 
and it starts going up a bit.

Does that help at all?
