Just a clarification: the WSIF version of the WSDL2Java tool doesn't 
duplicate the Axis code, it overrides some methods. So what I was saying 
is that the common code should be factored out of the Axis WSDL2Java code 
and Axis will extend it (to generate Axis stubs) and WSIF will extend it 
(to generate WSIF test cases), so we share the stub interface and java 
type generation in a clean way.

WSDL tools, not related specifically to WSIF or Axis, should be shared. 
They would be of interest to any project within and should 
belong to a common project, say ws-commons or something like that, IMHO. 

In WSDL2Java alone we have the following code, split between the Axis 
version and new WSIF version (which has some minor differences with the 
Axis one, see below): 
1. Code to parse WSDL types, generate java classes for user-defined types 
2. Code to parse WSDL port type, message and generate stub interfaces 
3. Code to generate Axis stubs and related classes 
4. Code to generate WSIF test cases 

(1) and (2) belong to ws-commons. (3) belongs within Axis, (4) belongs 
within WSIF. Right now I don't have any strong preferences over where the 
common code should go (as of today it is duplicated between Axis and 
WSIF), but eventually we should reorganize along the above lines.

The org.apache.wsif.wsdl package contains classes used at runtime so
perhaps we should move the wsdl2java class to a different package. How
about the following suggestions:

If we want to keep all Axis dependant classes under the Axis provider, 
we might want:

Just some ideas. Comments?

I've committed a hack to the AXIS WSDL2Java tool for WSIF in
org.apache.wsif.wsdl.WSDL2Java. It changes WSDL2Java to not generate the
classes WSIF doesn't use, so only generate the complex type classes and
service endpoint interface, and a WSIF specific testcase The testcase can
use either stubs or the DII or both. For example:

   java org.apache.axis.wsdl.WSDL2Java -v -o\Temp -pbabel -tboth

This makes another WSIF dependency on AXIS so maybe it shouldn't be there
at all? Perhaps it should be in a different package? And I'm open to
suggestions for a better format of the generated testcase?
