Basically, i had the same problem in reverse: i had to interface with a server writen as a COM object published via the Microsoft SOAP toolkit, from a Java client. The best information i found was other people's experience as described in the news, or the Axis-User mailing list archive.
Other than that, i also read the XML schema spec (i found several problems that way), and the latest SOAP spec.
My general finding was that Apache AXIS is a well behaved citizen and that it can be trusted as an authoritative source of info.
