Hey everyone:
I've not gotten into web services enough to now this myself and until I work through some tutorials on them I wont know enough so I figured I'd ask the experts here.
I'm in the process of trying to find a host for my web iste and want to make sure that I'll be able to create and make available some simple web services and also to be able to consume others that were made and published on different sites. My question is, what do I need to make sure that the potential hosts have in order for me to be able to do this?
Assuming that thet are already set up with tomcat or another container...
I know that they need to have all of the XML APIs, but what else?
As an aside, anyone know of a good host that offers JSP/servlet and web services inexpensively?
thanks everyone

Hi,
If your service provider have installed latest Tomcat and Apache/IIS on their system,then you can their publish webservices with no problem.
Latest Tomcat in the sense - any version that is recommended by Apache Axis.
All you have to do is create a new webapp and add necessary jar files into the lib folder of that webapp. Thats it done. You got everything that Axis offer now.Escp Jar files from Axis package, XALAN for xslt transformations(if needed), xerces/crimson for xml parser, and any additional jar that you may need for your application.
I'm using www.re-invent.com, very expensive, they provide ServletExec with IIS, i can able to provide web service as well. As you know, if you search in servlet and jsp forum you can find lot of threads on Servlet/JSP web hosting.
Regards
Balaji
