This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan 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!
