  • 5 starsFull of examples - a great tutorial

    The cover of this book says, "Timely. Practical. Reliable." and that is a good description of the book. It covers the current state of Java APIs for web services, it gives plenty of well thought out examples, and it provides enough information to actually make the alphabet soup of acronyms understandable. The book starts with an introduction to web services. The next section covers web services architecture and the standard technologies of SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI. Interoperability with non-Java applications is demonstrated with a .NET example. The book is written by three Sun employees so it does tend to be a bit Sun-centric as the next sections shows. The Java Web Services Developers Pack (JWSDP) is given plenty of coverage. JAXP, JAXB, JAXM, JAX-RPC, JAXR, may be just acronyms when you get this book but after reading the six chapters covering the JWSDP they will be technologies that you understand. A case study wraps up the six chapters putting the whole thing together. The book ends with a chapter on security and a look at Sun ONE. The book is full of examples demonstrating how to use each of these technologies. When you read a line such as, "The real fun is understanding how the EncryptDecrypt class works," you know you are dealing with authors who love code. For developing Java web services you will be hard pressed to find a better book than this one.

  • 4 starsGreat Job!

    This book is a great tool for developing web services for Java users. The authors presumed that their readers has the basic conceptual and programming knowledge of implementing Web applications using Java and XML. A book for all Web services enthusiasts, architects, and developers who perceive Java as their platform of choice for Web services development and deployment.

    Developing Java Web Services is organized into five parts, with exclusive chapters concentrating on the Web services technologies. Part One introduces the reader to Web services by taking an evolutionary journey of distributed computing and the emergence of Web services, and then it devotes an exclusive overview on Web services, addressing its motivation, characteristics, industry standards and technologies, strategies and solutions, and its benefits and limitations; Part Two walks through the different Web services standards and technologies such as SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI with real-world examples; Part Three exclusively focuses on Java APIs for Web services: JAXP, JAXB, JAXM, JAX-RPC, and JAX-R, and their reference implemetation on JWSDP; Part Four covers Web services security concepts and various security standards and technologies; and lastly, Part Five introduces the reader to the Sun ONE initiative and provides information on Sun ONE tools and platform servers for implementing Web services.

    Let me borrow Simon Phipps' foreword on this book, "this book is a great tool for your springboard to the future of how to make the Net work." Simon Phipps is Chief Technology Evangelist at Sun Microsystems, Nagappan and Skoczykas are both Enterprise Java Architects at sun Java Center, and Sriganesh is a Technology Evangelist at Sun Microsystems.

  • 2 starsTutor book for students at the best

    After reading the complete book i got the impression that the only possible audince for this book are students. For getting just basic understanding on Web Services.
    Despite the volume, size and weight, this book is no more than introductory to the basic concepts of WS. Any themes that are slightly beyond basic usage of standards and APIs are not decribed well.
    The title does not match contents.
    Security. This is very little in the book about real security. Again all limited by SAML and other standards. Nothing on .NET WS security, ws-security, 3d party vendors. Difference is that standards in WS security little have with real deployments.
    Architecture. This is not book about architecture of Web Services. Architecture focuses not how this works but what we build. In this sense this book have nothing in this extent.
    Describing standards and APIs does not define architecure apparently.
    Industry domaina are not covered. Generally business part of WS is not covered. Where is BizTalk, ebXML, XML databases?
    Nothing about RDF and Semantic Web as well.
    Bottom line is that i can recommend you the book only if you want to study Web Services from academic point of view being a student. This is not a book for professional developer, engineer, manager or software architect.
