Yes you can create web services without any tool.
I do not have examples but what you will have to do is create ur own XML using some kind of XML parser.
You will then have to send this XML over HTTP to ur service and listner at the service's end will listen for this XML request, ur service will have to parse this XML document (or maybe a helper class), do the processing, create an XML response and send it back to calling client.
At client end obtain the XML and then parse the response XML.
Instead of re-inventing the wheel I would rather use some tool to do it for me, unless if you are doing something very special.
