Iam new to web services, could you please any body suggest how to proceed with the Web services concepts.

Please suggest some good URLs for new learners and also suggest the way to do some samples.

Thanks in advance,

The Web Services FAQ has a number of links to introductory articles.

For running some samples, download Apache Axis, which comes with quite a few. It's a SOAP engine in a web application, so you need a servlet container like Tomcat to run it in.
