We should have all the WSDLs we care about locally available, pointing to
local services, and we should use recorded XML playback to mimic the
external sites.  In most cases, there is only one exchange, which would be
pretty easy to record and play back with our own server.

freedom from problems like this.  Our tests would test the important things
we need to know to make sure Axis is working, and then we can have separate
"interop" tests which actually go out and hit services on the public net.

+1. I think an online test suite is good too, but I cant run the functional
tests behind the firewall here for reasons I've never been able to track
