Java 11 no longer contains JAX-WS (the javax.xml.ws and javax.jws
packages) and we don't have a replacement yet. This will affect at least
Spring, Tomcat and Netbeans. I started packaging the standalone JAX-WS
implementation , one new dependency is already in sid (saaj), another
one is in the NEW queue (jaxws-api), and 6 more have to be uploaded
(javax.jws, gmbal, gmbal-pfl, gmbal-commons, metro-policy and mimepull).
These packages are ready but need some polishing (proper package
description and copyright review).
For a smooth transition I think we should switch the default JRE to
OpenJDK 11 once jaxws lands in sid.
