I've never used Sun's app server, but I can tell you how I got Axis to 
work in Oracle's App server, the steps should be similar

1) I used my own web app because it had other servlets that I needed

2) I copied the following jars from Axis to my webapp's WEB-INF/lib: 
axis.jar commons-discovery.jar commons-logging.jar jaxrpc.jar saaj.jar 

3) I copied the servlet and mappings entries from Axis' web.xml into
my webapp's web.xml

At this point happyaxis.jsp should work (it will complain that it can't 
find log4j.jar but it will still work and log to stdout/stderr which in 
the case of the Oracle App Server is captured in the OPMN log files).

I hope this will get you started.
