Hi people:
Which one is teh potential difference when you deploy a Web Service with one of those JAXB ,JAXM, JAX-RPC?
And the other hand, wich is the best in any specific situation or bussiness case?
I would like to know your opinnions.

JAXB is a binding API, it can be used in Web Services but not to send or receive message (AFAIK).
JAXM and JAX-RPC do basically the same using different symantics. Personally, I wouild not invest any time in JAXM since it (a) overlaps with JAX-RPC (b) is whithering on the vine ... notice that its not a part of the J2EE Spec? The future of JAXM is doubtful, IMO.
