Exposing web-services from a standalone Java application
I'm looking for a way to expose a simple web-service from a standalone Java application and I'm hoping to use spring-ws.
I have the following constraints:
- standalone Java application (not WAR), bootstrapped using JINI
- Java 1.4, but I might be able to push to Java 1.5
- App is already using Spring 2.0 or 2.5
I've had a good search and all examples show using web.xml to bootstrap Spring and well as provide the servlet context and configure the servlet dispatcher. What I'm looking for is a way to configure spring-ws or otherwise expose a web-service without requiring the application to be a web app.
Any help or links greatfully appreciated.

If you were using Sun's 1.6 JRE, you could have used the embedded http server transport. Otherwise, you could investigate using an embedded Jetty instance in your application.
