Just wondering if I need to go through this learning curve.
( Going through Soapuser.org looks impressive though ).

It is the hot thing around. In times like these- it could be a winner.

I guess the degree to which it is useful depends on the job you are tyring to land but I am sure it wouldn't hurt. It is the hot new thing I guess and that always seems desirable to have on a resume.

Just from the basis of the groups behind webservices... I would have to say 'probably yes'. It seems to be the way the internet is evolving.
Though, as my former supervisor would remind us, "It never hurts to learn a skill and not use it. It only hurts when you need it and haven't learned it."

Maybe you can talk to job hunters and they may know this.

You should certainly learn XML, even if you don't learn SOAP. Pretty soon XML is going to be everywhere you look.

Webservices and SOAP is quite new. I don't know if any company started any project using them yet.
In terms of jobs - nothing now, may be in near future.

Oh don't worry -- there are plenty of companies building web services projects now. Granted it's not as big as say Servlets and JSP's, but I've seen several projects already and I see more starting every day at any number of companies...

I think most of them are only evaluating webservices rather than funding on projects.
What I hear from collegues is that webservices looks cool but the prosperity may or may not be good. Performance and security are two main issues with webservices to discuss. Also, why is it better than others - is a question for many. The only advantage over other technologies I found is that SOAP messages can easily be passed through firewalls.
Anyway it is very interesting to find out and learn about this hot and new technology
