Hello,

I have a few questions about webservices. I am trying to learn WebServices but I am not really sure where to start. I have 2 books "Building Web Services with Java" and "Real World Web Services". I tend to lean towards hands-on education.

Additionally, a short term goal is to become a Sun Certified Developer for Java Web Services.


1) What is the preferred method for web services? JMS, Soap, etc.. Is it registering your WSDL in some UDDI registry and then creating AXIS soap clients to do method calls.

2) What is the mostly widely used soap web services toolkit? Apache AXIS? IBM Soap? etc

3) Does anyone know of a tutorial for WSAD 5.1.x that brings you through creating a web service?

4) What version of SOAP does Apache AXIS 1.0 use?

Regards

Good luck. We have a separate for it...check here http://www.coderanch.com/forums/f-80/java-Web-Services-SCDJWS

Depends, SOAP is widely used for most business cases. You are right,by the way registering a WSDL in UDDI is oneway of publishing webservices to users. wsdl can also be published directly on a website and let users know it.

>2) What is the mostly widely used soap web services toolkit? Apache >AXIS? IBM Soap? etc

For learners Axis is good. there is no IBM Soap...do you mean IBM WSAD ?

>3) Does anyone know of a tutorial for WSAD 5.1.x that brings you through >creating a web service?

Yes...check the ibm developerworks website, they got every pieces to get started.

Cheers
