Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Java Web Services Unleashed" explores everything Java developers need for Web service development. Starting with the business considerations and roles of service-related technologies within the Java architecture, the authors then demonstrate applications using the "pillars" of Web service creation: SOAP, UDDI, and WSDL. Next, the book introduces the JAX* pack - a set of Java APIs for XML programming that ease and enhance service development - using real-world examples explaining the importance of each JAX* API. Later chapters include a series of larger case studies of service development using many Java technologies including JSP and EJB.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Prasad Reddy on February 2, 2003
Format: Paperback
Part 1 (6 chapters) - Absolutely a waste of time, not worth a read. And the code examples are not related to JWSDP.
Part 2 (6 chapters) - Discusses on SOAP, UDDI and WSDL. The code discusses using a Older version of Apache SOAP and Apache Axis. The code needs a complete rewrite.
Part 3 - Discusses on JAXP, JAXB, JAXR, JAXM and JAXRPC. Good introductions but the JAXB chapter is based on DTD (which is obsoleted in the latest specs). JAXM and JAXRPC chapters just reproduces the Sun JWSDP tutorial...not much value addition.
Part 4 - Security, WSFL, WSIF (based on IBM Specs) currently these specs are obsolete no further releases.
It might've been a good book during 2002. The code and content needs an update to the latest specs and SOAP implementations.

Format: Paperback
I bought this, hoping to be able to use it on a web services project I'm doing.

I find it's completely out of date. Both Sun's JWSDP and Apache Axis have moved on since this was written, and you'll get better information from their websites than you'll get from this book.

Don't bother with it.

Format: Paperback
It is a good introductory book to web services standards like SOAP, WSDL and UDDI but also goes further and talks about topics like WSFL, WSIF which are not covered by all books on web services but are essential to any real business processes exposed as web services where flow control and service unit(s) choreagraphy is as important as the single unit service request/response. Java specifications relating to web services are also covered like JAXM and JAX-RPC. I wish more examples and code was given, perhaps even a chapter or two, for ebXML which may not be a part of web services standards but still uses SOAP and defines industry standards for business to business collaborations especially dealing with supply chain commerce issues.
I agree with a previous reviewer (John Sfikas) that this book alone isn't exactly an eye opener for experianced professionals who have been dabbling with all the tools mentioned in this book like Apache SOAP, Axis, WSTK, Tomcat, Jetty etc. and know the challenges facing B2B collaborations on the internet quite intimately, but this book combined with "Building Web Services with Java: Making Sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI" will give a much needed practical grounding to start making sophisticated web services in the real world. I highly recommend getting both these books but be prepared to use your brain and further what is presented in these books to deploy web services satisfying your needs. They will certainly not amount to spoon feeding you a near solution to your collaboration problems.
