SOAP is an XML messaging protocol. In a nutshell, it involves taking Java objects, representing them in XML, sending them across a network and converting them back to Java.

Sun has grouped together several APIs that deal with XML in a "XML Pack" - SOAP is included - look around at java.sun.com

Angela, you can find the answers to nearly all of your questions by simply browsing back through the topics in this forum.
I would suggest you start here and read down through some of these listed URL's. After you've read some of the introductory material you should understand things better.
