Hi All

I want to develop a web service that consumes a SOAP web service, that accepts a SOAP message and response with a SOAP message. Any help please?

Have you checked out Java SOAP implementations like Metro and Axis-2? Those come with extensive documentation.

Thank you Tim for your reply, I am new to web service development, and using Eclipse IDE with J2EE, I built a simple web service and I want to consume it from another web service using SOAP.

Above is my web service, the web service executes and run fine, I want to create another web service to consume the above web service, by sending SOAP message. If you have a simple example it will be great and helpful, thank you for time.

Use Help from Eclispe IDE: It has a section JAX-WS Tools User Guide

It used Apache CXF implementation. It's OK to get started. Once you know how to use the IDE and the steps involved for
creating and consuming a soap web service, you can change to any JAX-WS implementation like Metro or etc..
It's a matter of seting up.

You need to start with some basic examples where frameworks like AXIS or CXF with eclipse/Netbeans IDE will help you understand the classes involved.SOAP is used a s a protocol in Web Services where WSDL is exposed for access to internal methods.A result SOAP message with data is sent back.
I agree. Here's the link:
