I suspect the IONA Fuse Tooling 1.4.0 is that version.
I would like to use the tooling to build, package, and deploy a CXF-based service directly to the FUSE ESB rather than to Tomcat. Ideally, the solution would allow me to leverage the JAX-WS/CXF capabilties available in the Eclipse STP. Are there plans for tighter integration between the Fuse ESB Tooling and STP, specifically as it relates to deploy CXF-services as JBI artifacts to the ESB? Is this doable today but I just don't see it?
Fuse Tooling 1.4.0 is indeed that version.
On the CXF-based service capabilities, yes indeed there are plans for tighter integration - it's a must do for us. It's not doable today, however, and we have it as a priority for development. Once we are underway I'll update the forums.
