WS -SOAP learning

Hello fellow ranchers,

I'm trying to find a good source on learning SOAP and WS.

In my google search I found a useful tutorial on how to use my IDE to develop and connect the different parts together.
here is the url if anyone is interested.( http://www.myeclipseide.com/documentation/quickstarts/webservices_jaxws/ )

My problem I cant find any up to date information that will break this apart and explain how each part of the service works.
I purchased Java Web Services from O'reily and the first few chapters give a nice 60,000ft view, but i soon realized in chapter 3
that this information and the way of coding was very dated from what I've googled. I have the 2002 edition.

Any recommendation of books or links online? I want a nice tutorial that explains how things connect and work instead of just showing me a step by step in my IDE.

Many thanks,
Joseph

Thanks Paul. That link was very helpful!
I also picked up the book Implementing SAO Using Java EE. Chapter Five is huge help of understanding the WSDL file. I would recommend this to anyone new to Java Web Services!!!

If anyone else knows good links or books please post. I want to help the next guy behind me not struggle as much as I did.
