1.0 out of 5 stars Convoluted writing style, no examples, October 31, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Understanding SOAP: The Authoritative Solution (Paperback)
I don't think the other reviewers actually read this book. It is a very difficult read due to the authors' dry writing styles. Essentially it reads like a legal brief. When you get behind the verbiage, there's really not much there. A whole chapter was wasted on an XML tutorial that made little sense. There are also no real-world examples, despite mountains of code. The code examples only show what the language binding looks like in C++, no other languages, because the authors only know C++ (from their bios). Almost nothing about Java, perl, or the web in general was discussed. If you want a technical re-write of the specs and useless examples only in C++, you can get it out of this book. Otherwise wait until more books on the subject show up, preferrably written by experienced authors.
