While your dedication is commendable, this may not be the most effective way of learning about the nitty-gritty of Java Web Services. What you want to avoid is Wizard-type IDE tools and maybe even Java2WSDL. But WSDL2Java is an essential tool for developing Java Web Services. You may want to get started with Creating Web Services with Apache Axis to get your bearings. You can even use O'Reilly's Java Web Services in a Nutshell Sample Chapter on SAAJ to see how to create a web service without JAX-RPC. Then you should probably study the relevant chapters of J2EE Web Services (Richard Monson-Haefel; RMH) about XML, XML-Schema, SOAP, WSDL, JAX-RPC, SAAJ to understand what the Web service engine and tools like WSDL2Java are doing. After that you could expand your understanding by using Sun�s Java Web Services Development kit (JWSDP) and studying parts of the J2EE Tutorial and Java Web Services Tutorial.

J2EE 1.4 SDK (Includes Sun Java System Application Server PE 8.2)

For example:

jee: 2 Understanding XML
jee: 4 Java API for XML Processing
jee: 5 When to Use SAX
jee: 6 When to Use DOM
jee: 7 XML Stylesheet Language for Transformations
wst: 1 Binding XML Schema to Java Classes with JAXB
wst: 2 Using JAXB
jee: 8 Building Web Services with JAX-RPC
jee: 9 SOAP with Attachments API for Java
jee: 10 Java API for XML Registries
jee: 32 Security
wst: 6 Java XML Digital Signature API
