As per comments from most of the people, I have finished chapters(chapters 1-5 and 13-15) related to xml/namespaces/wsdl/soap in book "J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel". Now reading Soap With Attachments and its APIs in appendex (E/F/G).
Now, could anybody please let me know what to follow next. (By the way, I want to learn Axis2/CXF/JEE JAX-WS. So please consider this. Suggestions are most welcome)

Thanks a lot.

There is a phrase; "Roll your own".

It means instead of just buying something, build your own...

In your case I would suggest this:


Here is your assignment:

Create a simple RESTful web service
Create a simple SOAP web service
Create complex types of the above
Create secure versions of the above
Create very complex secure versions!!

Oh.. Create test cases for each!

If you do these things through trial and error and practice, then you will do well!
