I am new to Java and Java web services, so excuse my ignorance...

I have read some material about web services' creation on the server-side (bottom-up and top-down approaches). However, I am confused about the client's creation: I also found some material mentioning "Client EE" and "Client SE". What does it actually mean? Is one type of client a web-based and the other one is a "normal" application? I developed in .NET and it would be great if I could somehow find a similarity, if it exists, between the .NET and Java world with regards to web services' clients.
Also, any link to any documentation (to get me started) would be greatly appreciated.

Any thanks is really appreciated.

here is a netbeans tutorial that c4reates both a web based and a thick client

hopefully that helps resolve your concerns
