Can somebody recommend a tutorial helping to create simple clients to test web services before shipping to customers? It should be sort of blackbox test without knowledge of any details of ws implementation.

If your server exposes the WSDL spec of the services, then it's very little work to write a client aorund the resulting source code that a tool like WSDL2Java (part of Axis) generates. I doubt that it can be ever be fully automated, because the semantics of the service can not be inferred from it externally, though. And to answer your question directly, I'm not aware of a tutorial or a tool that helps with this.
