If you have Tomcat up and running, the easiest way to get started is by installing Axis on top of that. It comes with a bunch of examples, and there are quite a few more introductory articles linked in the Web services FAQ right here on JavaRanch.

Thanks for your reply
Can you tell me whether weblogic is necessary for running JMS related stuff.
and
Other than axis what are the alternatives for running and learning WEB SERVICES.

I guess you forgot to mention the Books

WebLogic is not necessary for running any particular API. For JMS, you can check out OpenJMS.

Another WS implementation is part of the Sun Web Services Developer Pack. (Although that may be just a forked version of Axis; I don't know.)
