JDK 6 Update 4 released, latest JAX-WS and JAXB included

Metro Tokyo

Rama is reporting that the most recent JDK 6 update now comes with JAX-WS 2.1 and JAXB 2.1. JAX-WS 2.0 has been part of JDK 6 from the beginning but GlassFish v2 and Metro 1.x moved on to newer, more performant, and mainly a much more extensible JAX-WS.

JDK 6 now includes JAX-WS 2.1.1 FCS and JAXB 2.1.1 FCS (versions from Metro 1.1). This means no more use of the endorsed mechanism is required.

OpenJDK is still a little behind with JAX-WS 2.0. GlassFish is still a little ahead with JAX-WS 2.1.3. Download JDK 6 Update 4 here.


Thanks! That endorsed mechanism was really annoying. I could never get JAXB 2.1 working on Linux and I tried putting the JAR file in an endorsed directory everywhere. This is great! Now it should just work hassle-free.
