XML & Web services: How do I invoke a web-service

  1. How do I invoke a web-service (4 messages)

    Hi!

    I am new to web-services and required to know, a couple of things about them:
    1. How do I write a web-service and enable it, so that someone (For the time-being, I) can invoke it.
    2. How do I invoke a web-service and what are the parameters, I require from the creator of the web-service to invoke it?
    3. How do I use UDDI to search for "all vendors that provide shipment from a source to a destination" to get results like FedEx, APS, etc?
    4. I am also confused about where JAXB and JAX-RPC fit into the picture of creating a web-service.

    I will be most obliged, if anyone could give me pointers in this direction.

    Thanks and regards,
    Pramod Mundhra

    Two really quick and easy ways to invoke a web service:
    1) MindReef SoapScope. A great tool to have when working with web services.
    2) WSIF. A very easy to use framework for dynamically invoking web services.
