I am a complete newbie to the world of web-services. I have a background of Servlets, JSP, EJB and JPA, but none of web-services, not even of XML(except basic XML stuff). I tried on my own to start with web-services but got lost in the maze of documents and books, all of which seem to be inter-related in some way or were too theoritical to bore me off to death.

It would be really helpful if somebody could spell out a plan which could be followed to get started with web-services, considering my background. Any good books which cover web-services in entirety is also appreciated.

I recommend you to start with Monson-Haefel book, the first chapters introduces you in the WS world, and this book will link the topics with the technologies you already know.
Its a hard task to do, because this book is huge, however nobody said it'll be easy.


These are the worst of times and these are the best of times. And this is the best tiny ad:
