Hi All,

I want to learn Web Services, but I don't know where the start point is.
Please tell me how to begin and what I have to learn to understand and run it well.

Sorry for my poor English.
I really need your help.
Thanks.
Rock.

What you will need is a web service engine for testing. A common choice is Axis, which runs as a web app in any servlet container (e.g. Tomcat).

You'll also need an (at least partial) understanding of the SOAP and WSDL standards, and SAAJ and JAX-RPC, which are the Java APIs for using those standards. There are plenty of pointers to standards and introductions into different aspects of web services as part of the Axis documentation, particularly the Java Web Services Tutorial.

Thank you Ulf Dittmer,

I will begin with SOAP and WSDL standards, and if I have any problems, please help me later.

Have a nice day.
Rock.

Yes. Ulf Dittmer hits it.

To play with Axis will give you a good ground for learning Web services.

Here is a quick tutorial which getS you started with Axis and SOAP: Part I and Part II.
