I've taken a stab at this issue: upgraded to Spring-WS 2.0.1 and updated the Karaf features file (see attached patch).
However there might be an issue with this patch: Spring-WS requires amongst others "javax.xml.transform.stax" as a mandatory import. Running mvn -Pvalidate clean install on features.xml fails with "No export found to match javax.xml.transform.stax;version=0". Adding the ServiceMix StAX spec as a dependency makes no difference.
The only solution I could find was to switch Karaf to Java 1.6, like I did in the attached patch. Would that be a problem for Camel? Camel 2.7+ only supports Java 1.6 but the latest Karaf version (2.2) still supports Java 1.5?
Furthermore the CamelSpringWebServiceTest test written by Claus in
CAMEL-3307 still fails under Spring-WS 2.0.1, this was also the case with Spring-WS 1.5.9....
