I'm new to Java Web Services and wondering do the APIs come standard with the 1.4 jdks or do I need to download something seperate i.e. the wsdk

If so where can I get and any setup etc..

The APIs don't ship with J2SE 1.4. You need to download either the JWSDP from, or Axis from Jakarta. Axis is easier to set up if you already have a servlet container (like Tomcat) running; the JWSDP by default wants to use its own server.
