SOAP, WSDL, XML service/clientby agentorange (Sexton)

agentorange has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
A few months ago I dabbled with SOAP and was ok calling a service and getting data from it. Trouble is not touched Perl since but I'd like to write a prototype to further my knowledge though am not entirely clear where to start.
I'd like to write a service that listens on a port with no need for a separate web server (ie. Apache). It would receive XML in a specific format and then act upon that data. I also need a client to test it.
Reading up it seems like I need:
But I'm not entirely sure how this all hangs together and the more I google the more confused I become. This would seem a very straight forward a task but every example I've seen seems more complex and/or relies on Apache and inserting the Perl as CGI.
Does anyone have a sample bit of code that view? ie. Basic server to receive two tags in an XML file over a port? Tend to find I need examples to get me that initial leg up!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
