After J2EE 1.4 has full support of web services, so why we need AXIS ?
correct me if I am wrong, put the application server (for 1.4) will support web services..

Maybe you won't always have a J2EE 1.4 compliant application server to run your application on...
For example, you need to make your desktop client application talk to a web service -- do you buy WebLogic or WebSphere just to do that? I don't think so.

also, Imagine that we currently have only a Webserver that supports servlets, and we want to publish some webservices,then AXIS will act as a "plug-in" for enabling your webserver to also support Web services. This is cost effective and also Imagine the effort that would go into introducing an application server just to support Webservices.
