So your aim is to provide a small core library which implements the 
mulgara store and transaction engine?

For the specifics: xfire is fine and all but can't handle attachments which
is nice if you want to handle large datasets - which might be useful for

Aecgi is (imho) not as good as j2ee declarative security and until you have 
deployed something really non-standard like an externalized authorization 
mechanism or GSSAPI-based authentication for webservices the differences 
between security shim-layers (like aecgi) don't really manifest themselves.

Personally I try to avoid having to make choices like that and work almost
exclusively with model-driven development (i.e code generation from UML)
which allows me to switch from spring+jsf+hibernate to ejb3 (to even .net)
allowing me to quit thinking about the details of xfire vs axis.
