At a minimum, you need to add:

OpenEJB, MX4J, and XStream to the root LICENSE file
MX4J, and XMLBeans to the root NOTICE file

Did you investigate Hessian licensing? I didn't find any licensing  
info (at first). So, took a look at the source. The first source file  
I looked at contained the following:

* Copyright (c) 1998-2004 Caucho Technology -- all rights reserved

I now see the following statement on their wiki:

"Caucho Technology has released this Hessian implementation under an  
open source license (the Apache license). Anyone may freely download,  
use, and redistribute the Hessian implementation."

But that's the strongest source of licensing info, that I've found...
