All a "web service" is is something that returns data over the web. It could return JSON or XML (the most popular and obvious), or plain text, or... whatever your application expects to consume. You can develop a web service using *any* framework, including no framework at all.

And I'm asking what kind of information you're looking for, otherwise I have no idea how to help you.

All a web service is is an application that returns data via the web. It can be created using *anything*. Do you know what kind of data you have to return? XML? SOAP? JSON? Plain text? Do you know how people will be making requests of the service? XML? HTTP form data?

You want to make a SOAP *request*? I thought you were writing the service itself.

I'm not sure I'd bother using S2 to handle SOAP requests since there are existing SOAP frameworks already.

There are countless SOAP tutorials and blogs and documents available on the web. There's no way to encapsulate enough information to be useful in a simple, concise answer here. You may post specific questions in the web services forum here on JavaRanch, though.
