works like a charm in axis2.

MessageContext context = MessageContext.getCurrentMessageContext();
HttpServletRequest servletReq = (HttpServletRequest) context.getProperty(HTTPConstants.MC_HTTP_SERVLETREQUEST);

System.out.println("yyyy.MM.dd '-' hh:mm:ss ") + "Request from client " + servletReq.getRemoteAddr() );
