this is a requirement that we also have in the future. But I don't know 
when we'll be able to put it in.

Client and server implementations are independant in Axis. Server is run 
as an apache module, but there is a simple axis server which can run on 
its own as a server.
What you could do is to use simple axis server and see if you could 
incoporate the client to that.

I have not tried this before. Hence I am not sure how fesible this is.
Axis C++ was originally written to have client and server seperate. So 
it cannot be gaurenteed that this scenario would work.
