wsimport now handles URL redirection of imported wsdls correctly
* I experienced myself this addition in the javax.xml.ws.Service class (extended by proxy generators created by wsimport). Unless your application classpath is configured in a very specific way, this may force you to stay with JAX-WS 2.0/2.1 if you are using Java SE 6, and go on with JAX-WS 2.2 if you use Java SE 7.
However, I have a few remaining questions that Deepak might answer below...

As mentioned above, I have a few other questions:
Apart from migrating to JAX-WS 2.2, which involves the differences I listed above, are there any other significant new features from a Java SE 7 point of view?
How can I tell the exact version of JAX-WS in function of the JDK release? For example, what JAX-WS version is embedded in JDK 1.6.0u32 (2.1.6, 2.1.7, ...)? in JDK 1.7.0u5 (2.2.5, 2.2.6, ...)? and so on...
I think this last question is important due to the fact that — contrary to Xerces, for example — the package names are exactly the same in the JDK and in any JAX-WS distribution found on http://jax-ws.java.net. This is why the classpath question is critical when using JAX-WS 2.2 with JDK 6...
