This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am a newbie in web services and I want to learn web services by utilizing a simple procedure and making use as a web service.
I have a java stored procedure deployed in Oracle 8i database, which I am using for sending emails. I am invoking the java stored procedure in my JSP and Java classes by making a database connection and calling the procedure.
I am planning to make this a web service so that I could call this from any of my application.
Could someone give an insight how to make this a web service, albeit the utility is not very complex and my knowledge about web services is limited, I thought I could start by doing a simple program.
Any help is highly appreciated.
Never take anything for granted because you never know when you will lose it

I can't speak to the JSP component. You take the java code which you want to present as a web service and create a WSDL The WSDL is the api which the rest of the world uses to get to you. You can do this using the Java2WSDL utility. So try that step and see how it goes.
Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.
