Im assuming u r using Axis apache software.
Use WSDL2Java tool to generate necessary stub code.
Check this one

Your question sounds very General and tricky,
  • Do you have VS.NET, if so its very easy to create a webservice in VB or C#, but then answering how to create webservices is not easy :-), better search google to find a tutorial on this, there is lot available.
  • once you are through with creating webserives, try to learn how to use WSDL2Java from Apache Axis with the links mentioned by Srivasan Mani, this will generate you the java code to access VB webservices.

  • Let us know where you are missing.

    I have written some Java clients that create a socket connection to a VB server and send/recieve data to/from the server. Is this what you want to do?

    I believe he needs to use web services (SOAP/WSDL), not a proprietary protocol.
     
    Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
