I think the current status (and I have the docs somewhere to find out 
what it really is, but am writing this from memory are)

-Apache Axis has the rights to run the test kit for the SAAJ/JAX-RPC 
(dont know about JAX-M)

-You have to be a member of the JCP to actually see the kits.

(a) If you are a full member of the Apache software foundation then you 
get access to the TCK that way.

(b) If your employing organisation is a full member (IBM, Macromedia) 
then you get it that way

(c) If you are an individual member then you can get it too

(d) Axis has to pass the tests before we release.

If you meet any of (a), (b) or (c) then you can get at the TCK tests. I 
think I meet both (a) and (b), but have avoided getting hold of the 
tests to date, though I should do it.
