how to build web services using Axis

Hi Members
I am developing a scenario where retailer and supplier exchange information using Web Services. Axis is the soap engine used and tomcat is the container. I intend to demonstrate both models jax rpc (inventory enquiry) and the jaxm (or saaj) for (placing orders).

My problem is: I found a lot of information (google + few books) but all the samples are based mainly on jwsdp (or web sphere etc...) but not axis, on how to build and deploy web services. I started with Axis documentation but I found it not enough.
When it come to Axis I have not found a good example to show all the steps (and why?) to build and consume web services using RPC and Messages.
I would really appreciate if any one had already developed a WS using Axis, could advise me or provide me with a good references with sample code.
Many thanks

The Axis distribution comes with some 20 examples -- have you checked those out?
