This is related to bug AXIS-1880.

I would like the org.apache.axis.description.TypeDesc code that is currently generated in
the Java Bean classes to be created in a JavaBean specific class (see attached example
 Then with the use of a TypeDescriptor factory (see attached example
the BeanSerializerFactory, BeanDeserializerFactory, BeanSerializer and BeanDeserializer could
be changed to look up the type description using the factory rather than using the java bean

This would also mean that the custom serializer and deserializer code would need to be removed
from the JavaBean and the BeanSerializerFactory, BeanDeserializerFactory.

I have tried to prototype this (see MyBean*.java) and have got it working for all base classes.
 I am still having problems when the class being serialized/deserialized extends a base class
but I am sure I am just missing something obvious.

I could continue with my prototype which would allow me to use my existing JavaBeans rather
than having to use the Axis generated versions (I don't want to do this as I have many JavaBeans
with comments and constructors that are used elsewhere in my code but that don't get generated
by Axis).

I am worried, however, that if I have to update these TypeDesc classes manually every time
I change my underlying JavaBeans I will introduce lots of hard to track errors.  I am also
worried about how I would keep my MyBean* classes in synch with new versions of Axis.
