Writing a webservice (SOAP) using Java

I was wondering if it is possible to write a simple webservice using Java which can then be contacted using a SOAP client. I have found numerous examples to do this using the MS Visual Studio Toolkit but I would like to use Java for the same.
Could someone please direct me to a tutorial / book or any relevant material or give me tips re. the same. It would be of great help.
Thanks in advance,
