Hi ,

I'm very new to web services. I have asked to communicate with a application through SOAP/XML.
When i looked into the internet i'm getting couple api's to provide it JAXP, JAXB, and SAAJ.

I don't know which way is better and which one to use ?.

Can you please guide and provide the links which contains detail informations and example ?.

Hi!
If you are new to web services and is going to write a SOAP web service client, then the easiest and quickest thing to do is to ignore any APIs and instead generate client artifacts from a WSDL.
Take a look at the tutorials at NetBeans: http://netbeans.org/kb/trails/web.html
NetBeans is the free IDE that has best web service tooling.
Best wishes!
