Interesting question. Folks have asked before about the possibility of
running the Axis client from an applet. Apparently it also tries to read
from the local file system. Seems like it should be able to continue if it
discovers it cannot access the local file system.

Subject:    Axis Needs Filesystem Access?

 I would like to deploy axis in a special-purpose
servlet container that runs out of its jar instead of
using the local file system.

 This mostly works, but a class called DefaultAxisServerFactory
insists on trying to create a local directory. I commented
out that code, but I'm unsure of the consequences.

 Can anyone faimiliar with that code give me some pointers?
It looks like  ManagedMemoryDataSource is the only class
that cares, but as I'm just learning the code base, it's
a little hard to tell.

 I'm willing to make any code changes myself, but I'd really
appreciate any feedback along the lines of "No, what you
want is impossible, Axis absolutely requires local filesystem
access", or "Oh yeah, there's just a couple of places Axis
wants filesystem access, what you want to do is dead easy".
