Hey guys,
I am having a question regarding implementing web services project from scratch.
Basically, I would like to know what is the best technology to use (good performance, online resources,...). I built previously a web services project using glassfish and netbeans.
I am not sure if this is the best way to do it now or shall i go for tomcat+Axis?

Thanks in advance.

What does this hypothetical Web Service have to do?? Please explain your requirements.

There are so many possible ways to create/use a web service that there is no simple answer.

Hi!
First of all, you may be interested in this article:
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/library/j-jws11/
Second, I would really question whether the requirements are so demanding that you can justify spending additional time learning a new web service stack.
If I were your customer, I would tell you to use the tool you have most experience with.
Best wishes!

Hi,

You can perhaps use JAX-WS and build a web service using the Oracle Workshop that comes with Oracle Weblogic. The approach can be a top-down starting from WSDL file and generating the required classes in Java.
