Hi Suresh,

Weblogic and WebSphere come with a SOAP engine. Both of them uses some version of the Axis SOAP engine. So no need to plug ur own SOAP engine. Its just a matter of using the SOAP engines given by Weblogic/WebSphere.

Refer the server documentation to see how to configure the server to use these SOAP engines, if they do not provide the facility of processsing SOAP messages by Default.

I am also a fresher to Web services. I need to work on SOAP over Apache Tomcat. Does the SOAP engine come with Tomcat? If so which version of Tomcat? Or do I have to install the apache axis package?

Please guide me in this regard.

Warm Regards,

Yes, Tomcat is only a servlet-engine/webcontainer.
Apache Axis.
