You can think of Axis as a sort of "Apache SOAP v3.0". In other words, it's the successor of Apache SOAP. Here's the "official" description from Axis FAQs:
Axis is essentially Apache SOAP 3.0. It is a from-scratch rewrite, designed around a streaming model (using SAX internally rather than DOM). The intention is to create a more modular, more flexible, and higher-performing SOAP implementation (relative to Apache SOAP 2.0).
