FYI we've done that for Axis2 as well- a fully dynamic 
serializer/deserializer that takes Axiom and goes in and out of IIOP. The 
result is that we can post any CORBA object as a Web service and auto 
generate WSDL etc..

The code is committed but is undergoing some changes to make it work under 
the Axis2 client API as well - so you can point to a WSDL with a CORBA 
binding and have the right stuff get wired in so that you can talk to it 
using the ServiceClient API. (We're basically bringing all WSIF 
functionality under the Axis2 APIs.)

Eranga Jayasundera (cc'ed) implemented this and is working now to finish 
the client side too with Deepal Jayasinghe (one of the main axis2 
committers). An article about this implementation will be ready soon too. 
(Eranga did this for his MSc thesis for which I was the supervisor .. 
which is my connection to this.)
