JAXM will not be part of J2EE 1.4, But JAXM implementations can be plugged in J2EE 1.4 implementation via J2EE Connector based solution.
More importantly, J2EE 1.4 mandates implementation of EJB 2.1. As per EJB 2.1, Message Driven Beans are capable of receiving JAXM messages using JAXM based "OneWayListener" or "RequestResponseListener". This means that J2EE 1.4 partly supports JAXM as a JAXM Receiver.
