New to WS, Jax-Ws vs Axis and how to get started in eclipse

Good morning everyone,

I'm looking to consume a webservice published by Oracle BI publisher running on Oracle Application Server. Currently we are using Java 6 with IBM's RAD tools which are eclipse based. Which way would be easiest to go to consume the service. Looks like the two most popular frameworks are Axis 2 and Jax-WS. Are there any advantages/disadvanges to each? Is one the 'standard'? Where is the best place to get started generating a java class from the wsdl endpoint?

Thanks for your help,

Cory

JAX-WS 2.0 comes with Java 6 (and can be upgraded by copying the appropriate libraries into the java.endorsed.dirs directory)
