As far as the Axis2 M1 is concerned it is a core of the anticipated
Axis2.0. The Axis2 M1 do not have JAX-RPC or other WS java spec
support build in. This was the view of the developers at the Axis2

But we will make sure that the JAXRPC2.0 can be layered on top of the
Axis2 yet the core of the Axis2 will have nothing to do with the
JAX-RPC. With JAXRPC layered on top of AXIS there may be a performance
penalty involved.

As stated earlier the the core of the Aixs2 do not have JAX-RPC or
SAAJ. It build on OM (A streaming XML infoset that supports differed
building and the xml pull event generation).  It's handlers are bit
different .. but both can be wrapped to build JAX-RPC on top.
