I'm new to web services and want to download
a free web services server to learn it.
Can anyone give me some suggestions on
which server I should use? I know that
all the big players (Apache, BEA, IBM, SUN, MS)
have one, but which one is free and following
the statdard (if there is one) and I can use
it with J2EE?

Download Apache Axis (web services) and Apache Tomcat (servlet engine) (all free from www.apache.org).

Thanks, Kyle.
What about SUN One and IBM Websphere?

WebSphere has a free trial version, but in general it's not free, and you specifically mentioned free
IBM tries to keep abreast (or ahead) of all of the standards -- when WebSphere 5.0 comes out later this year you should see that we've implemented pretty much all of the standards in the Web Services community, including
* The JAX-RPC API
* JSR 109 for deployment
* WS-Security
* WSDL 1.1
* UDDI
* SOAP 1.2
and just about everything else you'd care to name. That's the thing about Web Services, there's SO many standards to choose from.
But, for learning, Axis and Tomcat are probably fine.

Thanks, Kyle.
Is Apache/Axis close to the standards from JCP?
Is SUN One based on the standard? Thanks.

Apache Axis is based on as many standards as they can manage. For instance, it supports JAX-RPC. Sun ONE is pretty compliant, too, as are most servers. That shouldn't be an issue for making a choice, since most servers are or are becoming compliant with the existing JSR's and standards.
