You can definitely use Axis2 as part of your web services environments.
Axis2 has perhaps not been tested with WCF as extensively as Metro, but
it has gone through a lot of interoperability testing. That said, there
are aspects of each web services stack that may not work as well as they
should, especially when it comes to the complex WS-* extension
technologies. You don't mention just what you're looking for in this
area, but the WS-* technologies are where WSIT comes into use.

You can see my article at for a
review of the state of WS-Security support in Axis2, CXF, and Metro (not
quite up-to-date with the new Metro release, but fairly current). Other
articles in the series
discuss some of the different types of WS-Security configurations that
you might want to use.
