I've found information on wsimport, axis2, cxf, but I don't understand why there are so many different ways, the pros and cons of each, and how current each is, or kept up to date they are.  It seems anything I find about each of these has no obvious authoritative web pages about them that include discussions on use, tutorials, and up to date sample code.  Are all these a moving target?  Is this kind of thing generally not well documented in the Java world?  Most important, what would you consider to be the easiest and most supported method for consuming someone else's web service, for example http://www.webservicex.net/uszip.asmx, using Eclipse.  Please note I am NOT creating web services, just consuming.  So I don't wish to install unnecessary frameworks to accomplish this.  If you think there are more appropriate zones to ask this question, please let me know.
