Book Description

Comprehensive Java Web Services guide from industry insiders!

From the Inside Flap

Java Web Services Architecture is for Web services professionals seeking to understand enterprise architecture, Web services design, and application integration. This book begins with an overview of Web services, their usage, and design, followed by an in-depth look at the necessary standards and technologies (SOAP, EbXML, UDDI, WSDL). This leads into a detailed explanation all of the JAX APIs that are the foundation of Web services within Java, as well as their practical applications. The final section covers numerous advanced topics, including security. While various implementations are exemplified in a running case study, the book remains vendor neutral.

Format: Paperback
it might be a good beginner's book for understanding the basics of web services. When you start dealing with realworld web services architecture situations, all you get from this book is just how to make a simple hello-world JAXRPC, JAXM example working -- beyond that i had no more use of the book. The chapters on SOA, transactions, practical considerations, security are nothing but theoretical junk with no example proof. After browsing all the pages, I don't find anything which show how to build a working java Web services architecture. The word architecture is abused and does'nt make sense for this title.

This book isn't much better than freely available online documents on the same subjects. The book suffers from the usual problems of a book with so many authors--the material overlaps and doesn't present a single cohesive perspective.

This book is not at all practical. It has over explained individual topics to the extent that it is even confusing. It is the last book to be used for quick reference. Contents are of absolutely of no practical value. Go elsewhere if you want to learn to apply webservices. This book is quite useless to me and I am a very experienced J2EE architect.

I purchased few books this year on Web services and the frustrating thing about the latest ones is that
they all seem to be talking about the same topics, this one
is no different. I was mislead by all these raving reviews!
There are certain parts of this book
that you could find in a standard J2EE book (lots available online for free), other sections such as JWS Pack apis are a waste of paper in my opinion (look at the tutorial, they did a good job!). This technology has changed so much over the last year and there are still books that cover JAX-RPC & JAXM enough already! Out of the whole book, there is only a handful of good chapters that I may benefit from, or ... maybe not.

Format: Paperback
Many other reviewers have said it, but I'll say it too: This book is not as polished as it could be. My biggest gripe is that the contents are not organized in a way that supposed to illustrate a web services architecture. The lack of a substantive code and missing illustration is a serious problem.
Section 1 and 3 was a huge disappointment, because it is just as terse as the official dox: Plenty on discussing on the unrealistic stuff, but missing on how to do the basics! And most of web services discussion is like reading a J2EE book with no sense of service oriented arcitecture. I was hoping for something beyond what's on the java.sun.com web site.
The book is full too much of overview and mostly dated now. (allowing for the fact that software evolves faster than books ;->) There is too much goofy stuff.
I tried using Java Web services pack and examples 'round about the same time couple of weeks ago it looks all examples in the book don't work in 1.2. Now I have to read the other tutorial and books around, so I don't have a very good basis for comparison. Bottom line: I don't recommend the book as a web services architecture or a reference of any sort.

This is clearly the book for architects and is not entry level. Any thoughts that a general audience would read this title are shattered by the end of chapter 2. A working knowledge of both Java and XML are a prerequisite. That said, I recommend this book for developers who quickly want to get rolling with web services. The authors waste no time in diving right in and giving developers the tools and hands-on experience that they crave. The book has good code examples and even screen snaps! Altogether, this book is a great way for developers to learn about web services.

Format: Paperback
The author points out that programmers will often leave the specifications behind after the first month and go off in a different direction ... and he says this is *a good thing!* He encourages programmers and their managers to ignore documentation, as it just slows down the inherently creative programming process.

If an author wants to guarantee a positive response, there are few better ways than telling people their own laziest, worst instincts are actually the preferred model. Some of his points are so wildly off-base that it isn't worth the time to decide if the rest of what he says is worthwhile.

This book disappointed me with belated material and using older java implementations. The content and examples needs lot of updates and confusing the readers. The book suggested website [...] is not working at all. I find no response from the publisher and author as well.
