The most commonly used toolkit for Java web services - which works well with Tomcat - is the Apache Axis open source toolkit. There are actually two versions, Axis and Axis2. Axis is mature and Axis2 is evolving.

There is great potential of confusion when speaking of the Axis toolkits because both Axis and Axis2 are simultaneously in use with "version 1.4" the latest for both line. Axis2 is intended to support more of the evolving SOAP, WSDL, and WS-* standards with a faster and more flexible architecture. It even has partial REST support.

Axis2 home page.
All web services related projects at Apache Software Foundation can be reached from here.

There is a lot going on these days in Web Services toolkits
