Hi all,
I only know web service types SOAP (JAX-WS) and REST (JAX-RS). Now I want to start but not through annotations! I think first I should learn to create it (compile class, generate wsdl etc.) at core level using command prompt without any tool/plugins/annotations, it will give me idea how things works. After that we can start through annotations.
Can anybody guide?

Thanks.

You'll find many references to get started in our Web Services FAQ.

Thanks but I am not getting!
What is mean by different implementations of web services? Every person is making web services through different techniques (axis1, axis2, annotations, java web service development kit etc)!!! What all these are?
I will highly appreciate if you can explain.

Thanks a lot.

There are two parts you need to separate - the industry standards and the variety of toolkits available to assist the programmer in implementing the standards.

In theory, no matter which toolkit you use, as long as the standard (such as SOAP) is implemented, any client can talk to any service.

The toolkits keep evolving, for example AXIS1 was found to be too clumsy so they did a complete redesign for AXIS2.
