The latter.  The Axis2 engine is a WAR file that runs on a Servlet
container.  The web service is packaged as a service archive (.aar file)
and is placed in the WEB-INF/services directory of the exploded WAR
file.  You client makes (usually) HTTP requests to access the web
service, but the Axis engine is not needed for that.

If you wish to capture the message sent by the client, Apache TCPMon may
be of help for you:
