It mostly works.  I think there are some problems with not detecting if 
you change a message in the handler chain.

Not at all.  We only implement the j2ee web services stuff, which seems 
to be somewhat different to how axis is used standalone.

Basically we follow the ewebsvcs-mr-1_1 spec.  We do essentially no 
default mappings if you use a heavyweight jaxrpc-mapping file, so you 
will need a very complete jaxrpc-mapping file.  If you don't need 
security and your wsdl file is complete and shows the url where you 
want the ws to appear (you don't need the host/port to be accurate) 
then you don't need any info in the openejb plan.

You can also include:
(server side)
overriden url
transport guarantees

(client side)
overriden url
configuration of user/pw to log in as

I would try to get your ws running without security first, but ask if 
you want more info on how to set these additional configuration options 
up.  We definitely need to document this...

Hope this gets you started, please ask if you run into problems.  The 
IRC channel may also be useful #geronimo on
