First of all.I would like to apologise everyone for asking this repeated question(may be)

I seriously need a good tutorial for webservices.

Lots of terminology are used in different tutorials when i surfed.

and realised that Only solution is to start learning properly.

So somebody suggest me some good book/tutorial for beginners.

I went through many tutorials(it means MANYYY) i am not able to clearly understand.

Below is the i understood on a high level.

Any functionality/operation will be exposed as a service by the provider.

1) Consumer will search for one in UDDI registry.
2) Will get a WSDL as a result of search which has the details of the service etc.,
3) Send a SOAP Request as XML
4) Get SOAP response as XML

This is the only thing i understood.Cant proceed with a single step ahead of this.

So somebody suggest me some good book/tutorial for beginners.

Developing Web Services with Apache CXF and Axis2, 3rd Edition Jan 2010 is a really good book for beginners. Once you go through the first few chapters you will get a basic idea about WS. After that you can experiment with various frameworks like JAX-WS, Axis2, CXF and Data bindings like Jibx, JAXb.

One thing you can forsake in order to make learning easier: UDDI - you don't need to know this at first.

Start by downloading a WSDL and saving it on your hard drive. Then build a client that uses that WSDL. Then build a server that uses that WSDL. Deploy the server code to the server, and run the client code on your command line.

Books are great, but nothing is as enlightening as first hand experience. Partner with someone who can coach and mentor you. Invest some of your personal money in a training class.

Here is a good one:

It's only US$500, and self-paced virtual course.

After you accomplish that class, try this one:
