My understanding is to publish,consume a web services, we make use JAX-WS(previously it was JAX-RPC) API which is ported with Java 6 version.

Now, can anyone tell me

What is the role of

(i) Axis
(ii) CXF
(ii) Metro


??? - Please mention if i had missed any in the above list


Moreover my understanding for consuming web services is to

(i) Get WSDL for the web services - which will expose the details of web service.
(ii) We send a SOAP Request which is an XML which will have the name of the method ie., web service, parameters etc.,
(iii) Once the web service processes the SOAP request, it will send the SOAP response which will have the return values.

The above mentioned steps is carried out with the help of JAX-WS API.

Anybody, Kindly let me know if my understanding is wrong?

Please add your thoughts on this to make it as a discussion.

But the online tutoril to create a simple web service in ECLIPSE is different.I dont understand.... Anybody can throw some light on this too....

Excuse me for my query to be bit large
