webmethods and soap

i am new to webmethods. can any one give some references (books or site) for introduction to webmethods. how does webmethods receive client request form soap and processes the request and sends the reply to client.

For a general introduction to webMethods refer to “built-in” documentation. The installed webMethods instance contains several documentation in directory wmRoot/docs.

Use webMethods Developer (menuoption Tools->Generate WSDL) to create wsdl-file(s) for (flow) services to be used as web-services.


Start with the SOAP Developer’s Guide and the Web Services Developer’s Guide found in your [I]webm_home[/i]\Developer\doc\guides folder. Then read through a few dozen of the posts in this forum and work through the example in the “sticky” thread.
