Now can this process separated from my web app and converted into web service , where a predefined URL is processed and an XML file is returned , IF yes , then pl suggest some approach and links . And which web service I should use , like JAX-WS, Axis1 or 2 , which one is efficient and fast ?

That sounds like a REST style service, no need to mess with SOAP complexity. This could be handled with custom servlet code or you might look into the JERSEY open source project toolkit.

Here is my recent article on Jersey.
