What advice would you give to those new to the world of SOA and Web services?

What I recommend is to focus on vendor-neutral educational and training resources. SOA is growing and evolving as an industry-wide architectural model based on open standards. However, individual SOA vendors tend to skew the definition and models behind SOA in order to position them in alignment with their product lines.

Therefore, it's best to understand what SOA is as an implementation-agnostic architectural model. This leads us back to the common principles of service-orientation that have emerged to provide distinct design considerations (again, not specific to any one vendor platform) used to create service-oriented solution logic. Have a look at http://www.serviceorientation.org.
