Sorry for the off topic post but this is something that has caused me to
loose quite a bit of hair recently. If you're planning on doing webservice
development with JAX-WS don't use JDK6 unless you use a version more recent
than update 3.
I'll spare you the gory details but versions of JDK6u4 and onwards use
JAX-WS 2.1 which prevents the need for playing with endorsed directories etc
which is very tricky in IDEs and not un-complicated with Ant.
