Axis2/C has a wide coverage of WSDL schema types. I am not sure whether your
case is covered or not. You can post the WSDL so that we can see whether it
is supported or not.

Yes, it is correct.

There were some effort to port Axis2/C to HP-UX. You can see the details in
[1]. Hope you would also contribute, so that we can make port it to HP-UX.

You can have a look at WSF/CPP [2] as well. It is a C++ based web service
engine wrapping Axis2/C.
