Sun would prefer that you use literal messaging rather than SOAP Section 5 encoding. However they did include some information on SOAP Section 5 serialization and deserialization in the JAX-RPC 1.1 specification (JSR 101) under 19 Appendix: Serialization Framework.

Correct. Axis is a "Java Web Service" engine that implements some of the Java related web service specifications like JAX-RPC but it uses its own way of doing things in other areas. Sun's WS-engine implements all the specifications collectively known as "J2EE Web services" - for better or worse.
Hey Peer, Thanks for the link. I did read the appendix section of JSR1.1. Though the same describes in clear detail how the ser/deser work in Aun App server context, the same does not give any clue to how I may override the ser/deser implemenation. Am I missing something?
