Determine if Apache Axis is installed

I am using registry keys in order to determine if some specified softwares are installed on a machine. Since Apache Axis does not create registry keys, what other means may I employ to learn if Axis is installed on the machine?

Awaiting your response,

Axis can be installed as a standalone or as a Servlet app.
It can also be embedded into another servlet app.
There is also a C++ version.

A search for axis.jar might give you a clue.

This isn't really Tomcat specific so I'll move it to the web services forum.
You might find more Axis savvy help there.
