Hi,
That shouldn't be the approach to start with.
You should base your software stack based on your client's existing technology stack.
Otherwise, the client get into the trouble of maintaining two difference stacks.

IMHO, both .NET and Java were well matured now and so it wont be wise compare it at basic level.
So it is better if you can try to address what exactly Java web services can provide solution for a specific problem that .NET can't.
Regards
Balaji

A description of the proposed applications that will use the web services would be helpful.

the client applications are developed in both .net and java(struts), database is in linux , even this web service will be deployed in linux i guess.
and all the services are accessed on intranet, only the client applications will be exposed to the internet

thanks for your reply balaji

as you said both IIS and tomcat will get the job done perfectly. but to grab the work we need to show that we have some edge over others, so i was expecting some differences like tomcat is very lite weight server compared to IIS.!!!............

+1 on what James said. You're doing it backwards - start with the requirements.

WS are a language- and OS-agnostic technology. It doesn't matter which language the client is implemented in, nor does that have any impact on the server. It's possible to implement highly functional and well-performing WS using both Java and .Net, using any number of servers and SOAP toolkits. Starting with those is unlikely to help with making a sound decision about this.
