You need to implement Provider<Source> from
You get the xml payload and work with that. Check out for jax-ws provider interface and @WebServiceProvider annotation

Implementing the Provider interface is one way to do it, but I would personally prefer using JAX-RS, which is the API for RESTful web services.
Here is a link to a tutorial to get you started:
There are more tutorials on about RESTful web services.
