Hi Brent,

I am doing exactly what you are trying to do, and Axis works fine when 
you sign the web start jars. In fact, I think it will only work when you 
do this for several reasons. 

The main one is that for a web start app to connect to a server other 
than the one it was downloaded from it must have extra permissions 
enabled, and for this it must be signed.
