Hello there,
I am starter, I was setting up my machine for doing a soap based sample program. But found no place where I can get a soap distribution. Instead I found "Axis" that looks like a replacement of soap... somebody please give me some idea....

waiting for replies...

Welcome to JavaRanch.

SOAP is a protocol which has several popular implementations in the Java world, in particular Apache Axis 2 and Metro. That's where you can get downloads with everything you need to get going, including documentation and examples.

That was also -a long time ago- a SOAP implementation called (confusingly) "Apache SOAP", but it is obsolete and no longer easily obtainable. You can ignore any references to it.

Hi!
Perhaps the easiest way to obtain a "ready-to-run" server to which you can deploy JAX-WS web services is to download and install GlassFish, which includes the Metro web service stack previously mentioned by mr Dittmer.
GlassFish also includes a rather basic web service test tool.
Best wishes
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
