Anou, I replied to this but got bounced from the juddi dev as I am not a 
subscriber. Here is the salient part of the message again:

init() is part of HttpServlet's public interface, and in that base 
interface the method is listed as throwing a ServletException.

Adding that signature to the API was (a) requested by someone extending 
and (b) fixing something we should have done from the beginning.

I am sorry we broke your code, but the interface says we should be 
throwing it anyway, so now we are, even though the normal Axis 
implementation doesnt actually throw it -only declares its intent to 
throw it.
