Why it is every WS vendor will tell you contract first is the only way to work, yet they all ship a Foo2WSDL tool, not only that, their intro to WS docs (found linked from the axis2 docs page) probably have you use it. I wonder why? oh, yeah, authoring WSDL by hand is practically impossible because its a peice of crap. One of you should have the fucking balls to stand by your Contract First blathering and ship a decent WSDL editor and not ship a Foo2WSDL cop-out. ohh, the irony I can smell it from here.

BTW, I agree that contract first is the best way to get interop, but I don't think the tool vendors really believe that they can make WS-* successful that way, YMMV
