If you look under webapps\axis\WEB-INF\server-config.wsdd, you will find a
copy of the 'deployment descriptor' file being used by Axis. Typically when
you deploy a service using AdminClient, this is the file that gets modified
-- a new <service/> element is created within it. The wsdd also contains
deployment definitions for other artifacts such as handlers.
The Ant script you reference appears to be capable of not only building
various artifacts needed (client stubs, etc) but also packaging the entire
Axis webapp as a war, after deploying the newly generated service. Instead
of using the server-config.wsdd within axis\WEB-INF as a base starting
point, the script gives you the option of using any wsdd as a base into
which your service will be deployed. 
I guess you could also just modify the Ant script, setting the conf.src
property to your <Tomcat>\webapps\axis\WEB-INF folder, and your current axis
deployment options would be the basis of the 'packaged service' (WAR file)
created by the script. (It looks like, the other alternative is to make a
'configuration file source' folder somewhere and move copies of the various
configuration files needed (server-config.wsdd & web.xml) into it.
PS: The script is new to me too (as is Axis, so don't bank too heavily on my
perceptions), but I plan to take a shot at using it as well shortly . Will
let you know if I run into anything interesting in the process of using the
build script.

Ok, so I was just looking over this example:
but at the end of target generate.axis.files it references a file copy
file="${conf.src}/server-config.wsdd" ? Does anyone know what might be in
this file?

Or of cause, if this is NOT the way to develop webservices, please comment
on the approach :-)

What is Your approach to developing a webservice from scratch? I was
thinking you start with a java interface definition, create a wsdl file
using java2wsdl and from that you create the stubs and other files. extends
this to implement the service methods, package it in a war and deploy on
If this is the way to do it, and you happen to have a simple ant script to
demonstrate this, I would really like to se it if you would care to share it
on the list?
