I have some idea of SOAP. I am planning to buy a book so i can start experiencing soap in my projects as well.
Please give me some best SOAP books with latest update(like apache axis or...) , lot of code examples and must start from basic SOAP concepts.

I could recommend two books that I own myself:
Building Web Services with Java and Developing Java Web Services.
However, the former uses Apache SOAP for its examples and is therefore a bit outdated.

What about O'Reilly's Java Web Services?

I have that too, but wouldn't recommend it. I remember thinking "my gosh, this is outdated" often while reading it.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
