I'm afraid you need to learn quite a lot. Even if you use a toolkit that hides a lot of the underlying details, you need to know what you're looking at when debugging your service.

If your services are non-trivial, or are going to involve more than one programming language (e.g. Java <=> .Net) I strongly recommend you use WSDL.

www.w3schools.com is a good place to start. You need to look at:

  • XML
  • Namespaces
  • SOAP


  • To learn WSDL you'll also have to learn XML Schema.

    I am also a newbie to coding webservices. Although I am more familiar with xml , soap etc. as I have spent some time debugging. However I need to create all the java classes that go along with my wsdl definition. Anyone know a good place to start?

    Kimberly,

    If you have your WSDL already apache axis has an app that you can use called WSDL2Java to create some of the java.

    [URL= http://ws.apache.org/axis/java/user-guide.html#WSDL2JavaBuildingStubsSkeletonsAndDataTypesFromWSDL ]Apache Doc on WSDL2Java[/url]
