Using the felix console to monitor which module get loaded for the web application deployment, noticed the following webservices modules got active:
47|Active | 1|org.glassfish.webservices.jsr109-impl (3.1.1.SNAPSHOT)
and following got resolved:
17|Resolved | 1|org.glassfish.security.webservices.security (3.1.1.SNAPSHOT)
52|Resolved | 1|org.glassfish.metro.webservices-osgi (2.1.1.b07)
we need to figure out which dependency had triggered the webservices related modules get loaded/resolved, they should not be for a web application with no webservices. The test web application is attached in its parent issue.
