Using Axis "BeanSerializer" for stand-alone applications

I'm trying to use Axis BeanSerializer in a stand-alone application (converting between java objects & xml).
Example (assuming you have a "Customer" bean):

My question:
Can I *customize* this BeanSerializer, so as to control the XML output ?
For example:
- Configure xml namespaces
- Configure xml tag-names
(e.g. java field "Customer.surName" should be mapped to xml "< last-name >" ).

Does axis allow such customization (from a stand-alone app) ? Is it somewhere on the API ? Or can you configure it from a file (similar to wsdd) ?

I agree. Here's the link:
