Hi Silvan, hi Stefan, hi all,

we would be more than glad if you improve our OpenXKMS project and provide some more functionalities to it ... we think that this is the main idea of 
working on an open source project  :-)  even the "client-demo application" could be part of the same project, which would keep everything under the 
same "umbrella" and make easier for any other future developer of XKMS stuff to evolve the project and its related applications.

Regarding the technical stuff, I like your approach although I also agree with Stefan regarding the interest of implementing directly from the JAX-WS 
specification. Additional documentation and real examples will be also quite helpful for the XKMS community  :-)

If you need some more help during your task, do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards, Gregorio
