From-
Web Services Addressing

A Web services endpoint is a (referenceable) entity, processor, or resource where Web services messages can be targeted. Endpoint references convey the information needed to identify/reference a Web services endpoint, and may be used in several different ways: endpoint references are suitable for conveying the information needed to access a Web services endpoint, but are also used to provide addresses for individual messages sent to and from Web services. To deal with this last usage case, this specification defines a family of message information headers that allows uniform addressing of messages independent of underlying transport. These message information headers convey end-to-end message characteristics including addressing for source and destination endpoints as well as message identity.

From-
Web Services Adressing 1.0
A Web service endpoint is a (referenceable) entity, processor, or resource to which Web service messages can be addressed. Endpoint references convey the information needed to address a Web service endpoint.

From-
Web Services Description Reqs
EndPoint (AKA Port)
Definition: An association between a fully-specified InterfaceBinding and a network address, specified by a URI [IETF RFC 2396], that may be used to communicate with an instance of a Web Service. An EndPoint indicates a specific location for accessing a Web Service using a specific protocol and data format.

My interpretation (layman's terms)- a url that can be accessed from a port that points to a wsdl.

Hope that helps.

Most java IDE has tools for doing web services from a wsdl file, and even from a graphical editor, you can try, this is an easy and portable way to do a web service.
