If you want to learn SOAP then go ahead - enjoy. However, in the same way as you do not need to know TCP/IP to write a networked application, you do not need to know SOAP to write Web Services.

There are many tools available which insulate the web service developer from the complexities of SOAP. These tools which generate WSDL from your Java classes or EJBs and can then generate java proxies from the WSDL. No SOAP, XML, WSDL (or TCP/IP!) required. For some good tutorials on this subject have a look at www.capescience.com

Yes. XML+WEB+RPC=WebServices:

HTTP is the protocol, XML is the language, RPC is the concept.

If you know CORBA, RMI or EJBs you are also familiar with concept like Registry, Remote/IDL interfaces etc. that are respectively UDDI registry and WSDL interfaces.
There are yet many tools that make your existing code to be easily published as a WebService without changing it significantly.

kind of. knowledge of namespaces is also a must as well as schema and some other XML technologies. but basic XML is a good start. you can learn advanced XML technologies as you go along. remember that SOAP is much more than XML. it is a communications protocol and therefore much more complex than simple XML.
