Axis2 is a SOAP library that implements all major SOAP standards. Metro is exactly the same, maintained by a different group of developers, and also serves as the JAX-WS reference implementation.

wsimport is just a tool that is used for creating client-side Java code for JAX-WS WS. You can't compare it to Axis2 or Metro.

See http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/WebServicesFaq for starting points to read up on SOAP WS and the major Java implementations implementing them.
