In the client code above for Axis1, I only need to call the corresponding Service and ServiceLocator class. I do not need to know any other class specific to Axis1.

Last Question: In the generated wsdl, I see Soap11Binding and Soap12Binding for the single method add. Why are there two different bindings generated?

The generated wsdl is:

This is maybe more basic than you'd like, but it's possible to write a SAAJ client without referencing any particular SOAP stack; an example of that is here.
