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.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
