Hello all,

I am beginner in area of Web services.
I am kind of confused from where to start learning web services. There are many areas like JAX-WS , Axis web services etc.
I know little bit about SOAP, WSDL. Can someone guide me regarding how to go about learning WS so that I can understand concepts better.

Thanks in advance.

JAX-WS , Axis are the different APIs for developing web services. first you need to understand what is WSDL and by using the plugins in eclipse you can easily create web services.
this link will guide you to create a simple web service.

Hi!
For some slightly more up-to-date tutorials, take a look at: http://netbeans.org/kb/trails/web.html
NetBeans have better tooling for web service development, if you are willing to sacrifice visibility of all the details related to the web service client.
Also note that Eclipse also support development of web services with the Apache CXF web service stack nowadays.
Best wishes!

Focus on JAX-WS which is sun specification for web services. Read about it. Also understand what is SOAP and WSDL.
Then pick up sun's reference implementation of JAX-WS at https://jax-ws.dev.java.net/ and build some simple services and clients. Knowing Axis is not important unless you must use it in your project.

Thanks Ivan and Nitin.
Can you provide some good tutorials or suggest any good book...
I want to start like:
>Why web services are used & importance in industry?
>Then understand SOAP / WSDL concepts
>Later concentrate on specific API's (JAX-WS , Axis).
Am I following right direction guys? Please suggest.
