There's XML-RPC (http://ws.apache.org/xmlrpc/), but depending on your needs this may be overkill? This technology is for Remote Procedure Calls. I'm guessing you just want to use HTTP POST to send XML data to a servlet? If so, I'm not aware of anything specific. Good luck.

Most full featured IDEs probably have some facility to generate code to publish or consume web services. I've only used one obsolete tool that I can't recommend today. Scroll down to the Web Services forum. There will doubtless be some experts there.

It depends on what Subhajit is trying to do. Yes, Web Services are all about XML over HTTP, but more specifically, they are for calling remote methods or 'services'. If Subhajit just wants to pass XML documents around, then Web Services is not the right technology.

That said, I agree that people in the Web Services forum should be able to point Subhajit in the right direction - just be sure to provide specific details regarding your requirements.
