well... I think Axis itself only uses directly two externals to figure out 
the input/output parms: the WSDL it self,  and WSDL4J.  So that should be 
sufficient for it to be discovered again :-) Granted it may not be optimal 
from a performance or code re use aspect.  As for Axis providing this 
information; Does Axis plan to externalize this as a service (i.e. API) ? 
Is it something if I write code to will be supported and can be depend on 
not changing?  Or, should/will it be something internal to Axis?

Please respond to 
Subject:        Re: Call Parameter details

well...If you see samples\client\, you will see that 
wsdl4j is not enough. I
needed patch and use our org.apache.axis.wsdl.gen.Parser. So the WSDL is 
actually parsed twice :(
