The admin console is not mandatory, for example I remove it completely for
all projects at my day job. Anyways its functionality is password
protected.

You can set exposeServiceMetadata=false in your axis2.xml , that should
disable the WSDL being exposed. See below for the default config and the
comments.

<!--
       The exposeServiceMetadata parameter decides whether the metadata
(WSDL, schema, policy) of
       the services deployed on Axis2 should be visible when ?wsdl, ?wsdl2,
?xsd, ?policy requests
       are received.
       This parameter can be defined in the axi2.xml file, in which case
this will be applicable
       globally, or in the services.xml files, in which case, it will be
applicable to the
       Service groups and/or services, depending on the level at which the
parameter is declared.
       This value of this parameter defaults to true.
    -->
    <parameter name="exposeServiceMetadata">true</parameter>

Robert
