Axis creates a lot of its java source from WSDL declarations, which is 
why its test process is so convoluted. First the wsdl creates the 
source, then it is compiled, then the tests run. That does not mean 
things cannot be dramatically improved.

Dims says:

one more data point (nagoya, jdk13, ant-nightly):
"ant -f buildSamples.xml compile" (FAILS - compiles same build.xml many 
"ant -Dforeach.fork=true -f buildSamples.xml compile" (WORKS OK)

Anything is possible, but I think maybe some other change w/ 
classloading, vms, or the like could have done it.
