The idea of other modules is optional modules that provide additional functionalities or utilities: for example, modules that need to generate Axis2 services and service proxies. Axis2 does not use these modules at the runtime, and as mentioned earlier, those are only to provide additional features. Axis2 uses them as tooling modules to generate service-side code and client-side code.
