Can webservices be unregistered from axis?

I'm not sure I understand exactly what a web service is:-)  We need 
(even without web services or portlets) to have a gbean for each 
servlet.  Therefore axis itself, since it is a servlet, will be 
represented by a gbean.  If necessary we can add more gbeans to serve 
as a registry.

For web services that talk to ejbs, we can either use the standard 
openejb container gbean or if necessary write and extension gbean.

I don't understand yet about web services that talk to POJOs.  Is each 
POJO wrapped in an individual servlet?  Or does axis handle all of 
these itself without interaction with the rest of the j2ee framework?

I need to read the web services spec:-)

many thanks
