Apache Axis is a good starting point for learning Java Web Services.

http://ws.apache.org/axis

Sun web services Tutorial
http://java.sun.com/webservices/docs/1.0/tutorial/

Richards book on J2EE Web Services is also a good book.

I am SURE that Balaji will post more links and references.

It's offten seen that Axis is a good start point for beginners. But I cant understand what does it mean . After some time when persone leave beginners stage he/she should chose something else ?
One more question Apache AXIS or JWSDP which is preferable to use ? I knowe that this question has been raised too many times but times is going on and perhapse something change and this is probably one of the first question which appeared while diving into WS .

Thanks a lot !

Read this thread for which is a better java impl

It is easy to write WS code using Apache Axis. I am working on .NET project
currently. It is much easier to code WS in .NET using VS .net 2003.
