I would like to develop a standalone client for a WS that doesn't require a running web server (eg. installation to Tomcat). Something very basic that creates the SOAP message I want and parses the SOAP responses I'm waiting to accept. No WSDL, no JAX-*.

Is there a framework/lib to assist me? As far as I've seen Axis needs to be installed as a web app (?)

A client of a WS can run outside a web server as well.Axis comes with all the required API to make a standalone client for making a request to a WS.

Even Axis comes with a very minimal server too.
Hope this helps,

A simple SAAJ client can be found here. It needs SOAP client libraries in its classpath (e.g. the Axis libraries), but is otherwise a Java application (i.e., no server to install).

The Axis web app only needs to be installed if you want to implement the server-side, so that doesn't apply to your client-side scenario.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
