On a JBoss AS community application server, you're free to play with the ws 
stacks and try whatever you want, but please consider that successfully 
replacing jbossws-cxf with a vanilla Apache CXF is not going to be easy and at 
minum you're loosing the JSR109 features and all the JBoss integration 
customizations with the app server. Speaking of maven plugins, you can probably 
use the Apache CXF one without much problems, though I never tried.
On a JBoss Enterprise Product, instead, (including SOA-P) you are not supposed 
to replace/modify the ws stack. I believe you're loosing official support in 
that case, but please check the details through your established support

You're most likely forgetting something here. Speaking of documentation, the 
JBossWS 4 / AS 7.x webservices documentation is available at  
https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/JBWS/ ; in particular check  
https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/JBWS/JAX-WS+Tools .
For JBossWS 3.x, the documentation is at  
https://community.jboss.org/wiki/JBossWS ; in particular see  
The links above are also provided on the project webpage  
http://www.jboss.org/jbossws/docs http://www.jboss.org/jbossws/docs .
Finally, I believe the SOA-P product should come with his own documentation, 
including ws related stuff. If that's not the case, please let me know so that 
I have someone check.
