  I'm not familiar with how Axis parses .jws's, but wouldn't that be
possible since it's uncompiled?  Admittedly, allowing this would be a fairly
ugly behavioral quirk in the API.  I'd love to be able to just setup the
Deployment Descriptor with the Java/Javadoc path and have it work though.
Keep it in mind at least. ;)

Taking javadoc comments and putting them into WSDL would really be nice.
But it's not easy.  Java2WSDL works from .class files.  Javadoc comments
aren't in .class files.  So Java2WSDL would have to know where to find the
javadocs (or the .java files) and be able to parse them.  It's not a
trivial task, so don't expect it any time soon.

  Does Axis have anyway to support these documentation elements from the
WSDL 1.1 spec?

  I want to be able to leave comments in my classes such that when the wsdl
is created, these notes will be added for the client's benefit.

  Axis is quite nice in that client stub generation from a WSDL takes these
comments and inserts them as real comments into the Java code.  Handy.
