if your POJO already uses XmlBeans you do not need this as XmlBeans 
generated classes have enough metadata embedded in them to get XML 
Schema type info necessary to do all (de)serialization.

so IMHO optimal solution is to write your POJO/XmlBeans and then drop 
into any SOAP container and after minimal  configuration (Java or XML) 
you have service exposed and client that wants to use such service 
should just get reference to java interface to this POJO/XmlBeans and 
use it. BTW: tis kind of code mobility and SOAP toolkit independence was 
the aim of WS/XSUL2 [1] :)
