This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
If you do not insist on Axis, then I suggest having a look at the NetBeans web service tutorials.
If you want to develop web services and deploy them in Tomcat, you can still do that with Metro - just install it in a Tomcat instance and deploy the web service(s).
Instructions here: https://metro.dev.java.net/2.0/ Best wishes!
