I am new to Web Services.
Can somebody help / send a link stating how to expose different APIs e.g. C / C++ / Cobol / COM
as web services so that they can be integrated in a Java Client.
Can any IDE do it e.g. WSAD4.0.3 or Sun's WSDK.
regs,

It totally depends on the language. If it's C or C++ you'll have to use a Web Services engine for C or C++ -- there are a few open source ones, as well as commercial ones from companies like Rogue wave.
If it's a COM/DCOM interface -- use Microsoft Visual Studio to expose it as a Web Service.
Likewise, IBM sells tools for exposing COBOL interfaces as Web Services.
