Interoperable Web Services on J2EE and .NET

Can we create a web service using Java and call it from a .NET language and similarly the other way that is calling a .NET based web service from a J2EE (say using Java) program?
Are there any resources either on the web or anywhere else that explain programmatically how to create a web service that is inter-operable on J2EE platform and .NET platform?
Please let me know.

By Definition Web Services are Language and platform neutral . Ideally You must be able to create a Web Service in any language and can access it from any other language.
SOAP is a Simple protocol where the client and server can exchange only data and not behaviour.
You may need to look at a tool that provides
WSDL--java mapping abd WSDL--C# mapping
Tnx

Currently only teh MS SOAP and the Java SOAP prove the interoperability between each camps.
Unless U have to send with a long Integer, datatime (let's say in millisecond) or some unique data type only in one camp, the SOAP interoperability between .NET and J2EE stays quite good.
For the Upper level Web Services, since they are using unified standards or try to use it -:-), so it's no big problems for the interoperability, at least they promote.
