WebServices - Basic Clarifications

Hi all,
I am supposed to write a webservice inorder to deliver an XML from my Java application. The targeted platform(client to whom m supposed to deliver the XML) has provided me a WSDL document. Does this mean that i would be acting as a consumer or caller to the the client ?. I was asked to use axis21.3 framework to do the same using SOAP protocol. what should be my basic steps?. Any examples or explanations or tutorial sites are most welcome.
I have also generated the Test client corresponding to my original app,using eclipse from which i was able to see my methods of my webservice and able to access the methods of the same in Web Browser . But since its an autogenerated stuff, i suspect its a JAX-RPC call, correct me if i am wrong.. m pretty much doubtful on tat. If its an RPC stuff, how shud i proceed wid SOAP implementation ??.. Please suggest... TIA to all

    It doesn't mean anything. You can generate both calling and consuming code from a WSDL. You're not off to a very good start if you don't even know which end you're supposed to implement.

    Your basic steps should be as follows: 1) Download Axis2 2) Read the documentation 3) Implement requirements 4) Profit.
    If you can't get this done with the help of Google, I suggest you tell your client immediately that you do not have the required skill set for this task.
    But since its an autogenerated stuff, i suspect its a JAX-RPC call, correct me if i am wrong..
    I would expect it to be JAX-WS in this day and age.

    You don't really know what you're doing. If I were you I'd be Googling like crazy by now.
