The main reference is actually JAX-RPC 1.1, which covers Java mappings
to/from Schema/WSDL, SOAP bindings, and use of Java servlets as
endpoints. (JAX-RPC 2.0 is currently under development in JSR-224 and
will add support for asynchronous interactions).
JSR 109 addresses using EJBs as endpoints, and discusses deployment

	If you are looking for a Java standard's reference, I believe
JSR 109 covers this. (JSR 172 does the same for J2ME.)

		First, apologies for posting on an architecture group a
question that is clearly about implementation.  The reason I am doing
this is, as will become apparent, I am totally unfamiliar with the
platform in question and I am hoping that someone will be kind enough to
give me some helpful hints.

		We have a person here who is trying to provide some Web
service interfaces to specialized search functions on our corporate
intranet, with interop (consumption from .Net) an objective.  The
specific search engine involved is Inktome, which I believe has a Java
API but no direct Web services interfaces.  He does not seem to have
available any of the major development platforms that provide Web
services in Java (e.g. WebLogic, WebSphere, JBuilder), and I believe
that he is using fairly low level libraries in the Apache context.  It
sounds like he is using these low level calls to construct SOAP messages
from the ground up, and that he might intend to do something similar to
make WSDL files.  This sounds to me like an awful lot of work, and it
also seems to me that it potentially gets one into the difficulties of
dealing with the very detailed and potentially tricky issues covered by
WS-I basic profile.

		Can someone point me to some sort of development
environment or libraries likely to be available in this copntext that
are a little higher level -- so, for example, someone else has figured
out how to conform to WS-I?
