I own and read much of
Building Web Services with Java: Making Sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI (2nd Edition). I got so deep into the trees that the forest became a distant memory. (The book is focused on Axis 1.2beta So that's pretty out of date, right? )

I took a step back, read an introductory article, and said to myself "Ya, I know this stuff. I just need to do it."

I next learned that Axis 1.4 Final is out. Next I learned "Apache Axis2/Java Version 1.2" came out on April 27th 2007 ( http://ws.apache.org/axis2/ )

As mentioned in another post, it seems like Axis 2 is the thing to learn instead.

So... I heard there may not be any Axis 2 books out there which are known to be great. There are faster answers than books anyway.

What is the answer to the question of where is the article on Axis 2 that shows how to write a "hello world"?

Is there a "UML Distilled"-like book or article that doesn't tell you the world, but tells you enough to get going?

Thanks.

If this was my problem I would get a hold of SOA Using Java� Web Services (amazon US; Sample Chapter: Basic SOA Using REST) to learn JAX-WS.

(Mark D. Hansen's posts during a recent book promotion and his homepage)

That means you will be using the GlassFish application server for the web services. Once you have a solid grasp on JAX-WS you can move to Axis 2 - at least then you only have to figure out the Axis centric stuff.
