I concur.  Doc/literal support was an afterthought when Axis was put together.

That's been our finding also.  Axis supports rpc/encoded very well.
Anything else is just an exercise in frustration.  We wound up writing
our own doc/lit SOAP stack because Axis just didn't work and Sysinet was
too expensive and proprietary.

Subject: Axis doc/lit - impossible?

Mitch Gitman has an article up on JavaWorld talking about Web service
In the second page he covers several attempted approaches to
implementing a doc/lit service using Axis (none of which work properly)
and comes to the conclusion that "while Axis purports to support
document/literal, it actually doesn't."

Any comments? I've played around with doc/lit using Axis myself and ran
into problems, but assumed I could find a work-around with enough effort
(probably by avoiding WSDL2Java and Java2WSDL, and supplying my own WSDL
for the service - at which point Axis isn't really adding a lot of
value). Mitch says that Axis flat out doesn't support doc/lit, though he
appears to only be working with the W2J/J2W tools.
