[FWTools] GDAL and WFS Simple Features

I am somewhat out of my area of knowledge here, but I thought someone  
on the list might be able to help.  Someone we are working with will  
be setting up a WFS service using I believe ArcIMS  (it is one of the  
ESRI server products).  I assume that this sends a WFS restricted to  
Simple Features Profile of some sort.  My question is are there tools  
in Gdal/OGR that should be able to translate these files to other  
formats, or are there other open source libraries that are likely to  
be able to do that  (I.e we want to use the results in our own pages  
not using tools like Mapserver of the like)?  If the library would  
require some development, as opposed to the utilities in Gdal say, we  
would prefer Java libraries. Can Openlayers provide the translation,  
even if we do not use it for the mapping?

Thanks for any help and  suggestions.
