How does the Axis client library work? With SOAPHelper, the logicsheet
constructs the whole message, so there's no need to generate any client
stub. The SOAPHelper class creates only the HTTP connection and streams the
message onto it, nothing else.

As for .Net compatibility, it would be interesting to know what kind of
problems you encountered with the existing code. I don't see any problem
coming from the SOAPHelper, other than incompatible message format generated
by the logicsheet, or bad HTTP protocol communication.
