I have a requirement to Deploying Web service on runtime i.e. starting web service container in Java Program.

I saw in as to how Web service can be deployed in Java program in J2SE 6.0.

But I want to implement same in J2SE 5.0.

You can embed a Tomcat instance in the application. See this article for how to do this. Since both Axis and JAX-WS are web applications they can be deployed in Tomcat.

Jetty is often used as a lighter-weight alternative to Tomcat.

Also Axis2 comes with org.apache.axis2.transport.http.SimpleHTTPServer. How do I Embed SimpleHTTPServer in My Application and Deploy a POJO?.

I'm new to J2SE6 web services. Is the light weight HTTP Server that comes with J2SE6 equivalent to Jetty? Is there anyway to get HTTPSession information from this light weight HTTP Server?
