I want to learn and develop webservices in Java. Where can I start?? What are the good websites and books for a complete beginner??
I have worked on web applications and desktop applications.
Your suggestion is highly appreciated and thanks in advance for the same.

For the Java side I'd start with
SOA Using Java� Web Services
. As you learn more you may also want to explore the on-line documentation in order to figure out how to do the same things in
For a platform independent (technology) perspective (use of WS-* standards) of web services check out:
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA): Concepts, Technology, and Design
SOA Principles of Service Design
If you want to broaden your perspective also include RESTful web services (
RMH: WS* vs. REST / Intelligence vs. Wisdom
RESTful Web Services
Other than that have a look over the
web services FAQ
Dave Podnar's 5 Stages of Dealing with Web Services
Denial - It's Simple Object Access Protocol, right?
Over Involvement - OK, I'll read the SOAP, WSDL, WS-I BP, JAX-RPC, SAAJ, JAX-P,... specs. next, I'll check the Wiki and finally follow an example showing service and client sides.
Anger - I can't believe those #$%&*@s made it so difficult!
Guilt - Everyone is using Web Services, it must be me, I must be missing something.
Acceptance - It is what it is, Web Services aren't simple or easy.
Am I Stupid or is Java Web Services Really Hard?

web services are very interesting and easy..
Hi, after a 6 yrs of experience in web technologies using java, I worked on web services for 6 months using apache axis. I found it very easy, interesting, crazy, LESS STRESSFUL, more respectful job.
U can learn apache axis using USER GUIDE,
For better understanding, take a glance at IBM implemented web services also,
Take a glance at BEA web services,
Take a glance at the SUN web services,
I mentioned few URLS, so that a little little reading would improve the interest and understanding levels on the web services technology.
All the Best..
