(Unspecified) Same as setting "default"
"default" If S2 container is set javax.servlet.ServletContext then same as "default-server", if not then same as setting "default-client".
"default-client" Retrieve component implemenation set by javax.xml.rpc.Service from S2 container and use that engine.
"default-server" To try find engine from searching servlet:AxisServlet. If it could not find one, try to find an engine by searching servlet:AxisEngine.
"s2:name" Use component as Axis engine retrieved from S2 container name.
