Hosting Web Services on Domino

This is something which I have been struggling with for a few days now and I can't be the only person who has tried it. First, some background. I want to host a Web Service on a "pure" Domino server (i.e. no Websphere or extraneous add-ons) for various political reasons which are too boring to go into, I would rather not run agents as I am looking for performance so a servlet seems the obvious choice and finally I don't want to have to manually parse the SOAP header, WSDL etc as we are trying to use complex data types between Domino and .Net.

Now, I realise that ND7 offers all of this with the new Web Service design element but I need it now unfortunately. Originally I was planning to use WSAD to read in the WSDL, generate the code and then just port it across to Domino but there is just too much hacking involved, I couldn't get it to work anyway.

So now I am looking at Apache Axis to see whether it could be a go-er and it looks promising but I have issues... will it perform, how dangerous is it to replace wsdl4j.jar on the Domino server as suggested on notes.net?

If anyone has any experience it would be greatly appreciated. As I find the answers to the problems I'll continue to post updates and then, if anyone is interested maybe put together some sort of article about my solution.
