I've build a webapplication on Apache Tomcat and now I want to build different SOAP services for communicating with different other programs.

What is your experience voor building this?
Wat are good books for SOAP and another webservices. I was self looking for
SOAP with Tomcat

At this moment I've no experience with SOAP. There are JAVA-classes developed which need to be used as a service.

That article deals with the obsolete Apche SOAP project. These days you'd use Apache Axis instead, preferably version 2.x, but 1.x will do nicely as well.

If you prefer writing annotations to writing code, then JAX-WS is the way to go; it can be run on Tomcat as well.

Explanations of these various toolkits, and may helpful can be found in the WebServicesFaq.
