I am looking for some sample JAVA code where there is client code and server code and SOA is implemented. Is there a website with good examplers? I cannot find a book with example code.

SOA is an architectural style for implementing a communications infrastructure; it goes way beyond simple client/server code pieces.

Are you asking about setting up a web service (which can be used for implementing parts of a SOA)? If so, have you given any thought on SOAP vs. REST?

I realize thet SOA is an architecture design. I am looking to build a server that implements a SOA architecture but does not have to be web based or gui based. I then want a java client that will invoke a method of this server using soap. This is for training purposes.

I think Ulf made it clear that SOA is an architecture which can be implemented with webservices or Messaging.

Here is the defination from wiki.
In computing, service-oriented architecture (SOA) provides methods for systems development and integration where systems package functionality as interoperable services. A SOA infrastructure allows different applications to exchange data with one another.

So it is a very wide term which can be anything for exchange of data. What exactly are you looking for. Be more specific to your requirement or if you want to learn the concepts of SOA by implementing webserived, this book is good one to start. SOA Using Java(TM) Webservices
