RE: JAX-RPC mapping file, really needed?

Found out that Axis' java2wsdl can preserve method parameter names when
you hand over the service impl class. I think I could work with the
generated WSDL in containers like Sun AS or WebSphere. So far, so good.
Now, I just need to know if I could omit this JAX-RPC mapping file or if
I could generate it matching my Axis generated WSDL ... Axis, could'nt
you create the beast for me, even if you do not need it??? :-)
