I am new to the topic : Web Services

can anybody please help in by telling me how to proceed.I have downloaded a tutorial from the sun website, I have the java SDK and the tomcat server loaded in my computer.

I am getting hundreds of results for web services when I browse but I am not sure how to proceed.

The next step would be to install the SOAP engine Axis as a web app in Tomcat, and to make sure you get the "happy-axis" page with no errors (the installation instructions will tell you how to do this; it's easy). Then, to get started building your own service, read this article. Then read a few more articles on various topics which are referenced in the JavaRanch Web Services FAQ, and you're well on your way. Come back here if you have questions.

Hi there

You need to go through this

before getting started with webservices. The procedure described there seems complicated but you can have a feel of a webservice.
