You can't, since all these jars from Sun where removed from ibiblio because of the license.
Therefore my question, what did the other projects do with these dependencies? There must
be others too, since this applies also to javamail, jdbc core, saaj, xmlprc, jaxr, ...

They are in the j2ee 1.4 release. I created on a server a local Maven repository with the
proper layout and file namesd to fullfil these dependencies. As alternative I could have used with something like

maven.jar.override = on
maven.jar.saaj-api = $(j2ee.home)/lib/saaj-api.jar

But even this assumes the user run maven with -Dj2ee.home=Whaterver.

AFAIK you can't without vialoating the license.

Hey, the Sun controles the live of an Apache, but an Apache (even if named Geronimo) does
not control the course of the Sun ... 

IHMO you cannot solve the problem, you can only document it. So point the user for jelly-soap
to j2ee 1.4 and add a link to the Maven overriding mechanism and/or the local repository layout
in Maven's User Guide. Since the problem is not Jelly-specific, but a general problem with
Maven, it might be interesting to improve that Guide regarding the Sun jars.
