Does Websphere Application Server 6.0 support the WS-Addressing (Web Services Addressing) specification?

I installed Websphere Application Server version 6.0 and I located these jar files:

$WAS_HOME/lib/wsaddressing.jar
$WAS_HOME/lib/wsaddressing_impl.jar

Unfortunately, the Websphere 6.0 product documentation does not discuss WS-Addressing at all.

There is a mention here
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ws60help/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.websphere.express.doc/info/exp/ae/cwbs_supportfunction.html

You should check out the Globus Toolkit 4 for WS-addressing, WSRF etc.

Thanks for the link. The WAS 6.0 InfoCenter does not say much
about WS-Addressing.

I'd like to see more documentation:

1) what version of WS-Addressing is embedded in WAS 6.0?
2) How can an application developer use WS-Addressing
3) Is there a WS-Addressing API?

IBM's ETTK provides an implementation of WS-Addressing:

Apache has an implementation of WS-Addressing:

http://ws.apache.org/ws-fx/addressing/index.html

JSR-261 will define a standard API for WS-Addressing:
