Axis and web service deployment

I read some tutorial about using Axis. It says you can deploy the .class file to the server, and then you cna create .wsdd file describing your service details. Then that's it. You can write client to access your deployed web service.

I don't understand --

1. In this case why you don't need to do "java2WSDL" and "WSDL2java" ? Is it because Axis does that for you automatically ?

2. Why you don't need to create deploy.wsdd and undeploy.wsdd ?

You can create a file server-config.wsdd with the information for Axis to do the deploy.

For example:

<service name="MyClass" provider="java:RPC">
<parameter name="allowedMethods" value="*"/>
<parameter name="className" value="lo.webServices.MyClass"/>

With above configuration you are deploying a Web Service called 'MyClass' implemented in the class lo.webServices.MyClass and those all methods can be accesed (allowedMethods value=*)

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
