Spring-WS SAAJ problem in JBoss

I recently used Spring-WS in an application that we wanted to deploy under JBoss 4.0.1sp1 / JDK 1.5 and JBoss 5.1.0GA / JDK 1.6. I had a good few problems getting the dependencies just right but the biggest problem was with SAAJ.

If you’re running JBoss 4.0.1sp1 and JDK 1.5, you’ll need to package a SAAJ implementation with your app. Easy enough. However, if you’re running JBoss 5.1.0GA and JDK1.6, you don’t want to include a SAAJ implementation as it’s included in the JDK 1.6 release. Also easy enough? Er no.
