    Hello,

    Your question is or description rather is pretty vague. The top-down and bottom-up approaches seem more like overall architectural processes rather than for creating the actual web service. It always important to see the bigger picture and consider as many use cases as you can when building your web service.

    I've been involved in writing a few web services and we run these on Jetty. During build/development we use Maven and the Jetty plugin to run integration tests during the actual build. I find this to be pretty good.

    I also tend to use JAX-WS (Metro) as my web service stack of choice at the moment but I'm leaning more towards using REST in the future, currently looking into using JAX-RS (Jersey) for this.

    I hope this post has some value to you but if you need more precise and exact answers I will need you to elaborate a little bit about your processes in order to be able to analyze them better and provide some constructive criticism.

    I have been using the links below till now. But I'm looking for an efficient way of doing it.
    Creating Top Down Web Service

    It would be really helpful if you can direct me towards some links or tutorials containing some sample codes as I am really new into this.

    Hi sireesha,
    Regarding the requirement you mentioned, I would like to know whether you are required to give (i) the content of a text file as a webservice response or (ii)the text file itself as a response.

    In case (i),It can be done easily by including a file stream object in your web service class and reading the text file using that.
    In case (ii),you will be required to send the text file as an attachment.(Explore on SAAJ api).

    Do revert back in case u need further help
