Well, some of my vision may be overlapping with the Axis vision. But how
is it related to generate JAXB compliant objects (in general I mean
objects that can marshall/unmarshall itselfs) for the WSDL types? In my
opinion this will increase the use in Cocoon, but I have no idea for
Axis. Such a code generator will enable us to describing SOAP messages
in general. At my company we've developed a XML Schema to Java toolkit
to get XMLizable java objects exactly for that (different architecture
that JAXB though).

I thought of starting a separate project for that because parts of it
are not tightly bound to Cocoon2. They can be use in general (XML-Schema
-> java source according to JAXB). If some Axis people will join we can
build up a toolset that satisfies all (and now my Avalon bias mind sees
pluggable generator components :).
