> Axis2 ServiceDeployer implements Deployer interface like any other Axis2 deployers but
it does not use axis2.xml file instead ServiceDeployer is hard coded in DeploymentEngine.
This approach having some limitations. 
> 1.) It is not possible to disable ServiceDeployer if a user only wants to use any other
deployer. ( e.g - only JAX-WS deployer) but other deployers grant such features. 
> 2.) It is not possible to use  newly introduced custom ServiceBuilderExtension  feature
with ServiceDeployer. 
> 3.) Standard  axis2.xml based <deployer> element use "extension" and "directory"
attributes to define deployment unit type ( file extension) and container directory. But ServiceDeployer
only work with AAR or exploded AAR archives also use "ServicesDirectory" parameter to specify
directory this is no longer required with proposed solution.   
> 4.) It's kind of bad practice to have two deployment architectures within a single framework.
It would be nice to port ServiceDeployer into well designed Deployer interface + axis2.xml
based approach. 
> 5.) With above 3. it is possible to use customized ServiceDeployers easily. 
> Following entry need to be added to axis2.xml files of existing applications to keep
backward comparability if the applications upgraded to Axis2 1.7.0 or later versions. 
>   <deployer extension=".aar" directory="services" class="org.apache.axis2.deployment.ServiceDeployer">
>         <serviceBuilderExtension name ="jwsbuilderExt" class="org.apache.axis2.jaxws.framework.JAXWSServiceBuilderExtension"/>
>         <serviceBuilderExtension name ="jwsbuilderExt" class="org.apache.axis2.deployment.WSDLServiceBuilderExtension"/>
>    </deployer>
