Hi all, I am new to web services......Please guide me how to start learning web services ..... I wanna learn web services in java... I have read various books and gone through various site in web services but everywhere i find theory about SOAP,WSDL,UDDI etc.... I am not able to find the steps that one needs to follow in order to write the code to run a web service.... where to save the files, how to deploy, what are the various jars needed in the classpath, what all classes we need to write for a complete web service......... I have heard that there are various ways to write the client in a web service...... Please help me ....
Yes, there are a number of ways you could use web services, depending on which API and WS engine you want to use. I'd recommend to start with the Axis2 toolkit (get it from ws.apache.org/axis2). It's a web app that needs a servlet container like Tomcat to run in, and comes with numerous ready-to-deploy examples in the samples/quickstart and samples/userguide directories.
As an aside, please refrain from using multitudes of exclamation marks, or using bold fonts for large parts of your post. They just make it harder to read, and may put off people.
