Funny you should mention this. :)  I have a "LocalTestCase" utility 
class on my machine, which sets up a no-filesystem AxisConfiguration and 
then makes it very easy to deploy services and obtain initialized 
clients.  Then you extend that with test cases - I've got a working one 
for SOAP sessions, for instance.

I've got a couple of issues with it at the moment:

First, where to put it?  I'd like it to be usable for unit testing, so I 
don't quite want to put it in the integration module - I was thinking 
kernel, but then we also want it to be usable by other modules.  Should 
we have some kind of a test-utils module (this has come up before) which 
gets depended upon by the test phases of the other modules?

Second, I'd like to be able to deploy modules (in particular addressing) 
into the server without relying on a filesystem repository.  I *think* 
there is a way to do this using the classpath, but I haven't yet gone 
through and made it work so we can pick up the built "addressing.mar" 
from the maven repository.  Anyone got this working?

Once we resolve the first issue, I'll check this in so others can take a 
look and work on it.  Then we can start to migrate some of our 
HTTP-based tests over.
