If the service is the same (i.e., it accepts the same XML and returns the 
same XML) then changes in how that XML is described should not affect the 
clients. That is, what Thilina is saying is that we generate doc/lit style 
WSDL 1.1 documents by default and Axis1 I believe generates rpc/encoded 
style ones for POJOs. However, if they're backed by the same POJO then the 
client should continue to work unmodified because its sending and 
receiving the same XML as before.
