“J2EE™ Web Services is written in the tradition of great books people have come to expect from author Richard Monson-Haefel. More than a complete and concise Web services reference, this essential guide is the way for J2EE developers to quickly master Web services architecture and development.”—Floyd Marinescu
Author, EJB Design Patterns
“Written in a straightforward and approachable style, Monson-Haefel’s latest book is a mustread for any Java developer who is serious about understanding and applying the J2EE APIs in support of Web services. By concentrating on the core technologies endorsed by the WS-I, it clearly explains why Web services will succeed in realizing the interoperability promise where previous attempts have failed.”—James McCabe

“This is the best—and most complete—description of J2EE Web services that I’ve seen. If you’re a Java developer, you need this book.”—David Chappell
Chappell & Associates
“For Java Web service developers, this book is going to be there on their desk next to their PC for easy reference. The book has it all, clear guides as to what WSDL, SAAJ, UDDI are, and how they are used in a variety of examples. Monson-Haefel has created another classic with this volume.”—Dr. Bruce Scharlau
Department of Computing Science
University of Aberdeen, Scotland
“Richard Monson-Haefel provides the most comprehensive analysis of J2EE Web services that I’ve seen so far to date. This book covers the core Web services technologies (XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI), as well as the Java APIs for Web services (JAX-RPC, SAAJ, JAXR, JAXP, and Web Services for J2EE, version 1.1). Richard also goes into detail on issues such as fault handling, type mapping, and JAX-RPC handlers. Developers will find this book to be a very valuable reference.”—Anne Thomas Manes

Author, Web Services: A Manager’s Guide
“J2EE™ Web Services is an excellent reference and tutorial for both beginning and seasoned Web services architects and developers. This book is the first to fully cover the WS-I 1.0 Web services standards and their integration with J2EE 1.4 components. Spend time with this book, and you’ll soon master J2EE Web Services and be able to successfully use this technology to solve key business integration problems in your enterprise.”—Tom Marrs

Web services are revolutionizing the way enterprises conduct business, as they allow disparate applications to communicate and exchange business data. Now, Java 2, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) delivers a complete Web services platform. But how do you make sense of the sea of acronyms in this emerging area? Richard Monson-Haefel comes to the rescue with this essential guide for Java developers who need to understand J2EE APIs for Web services and the Web services standards.
J2EE Web Services is a comprehensive guide to developing and deploying Web services using J2EE technology. Concentrating on standards sanctioned by the Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) for maximum interoperability, the author delves into Web-service standards and the J2EE 1.4 Web-service APIs and components with clear and engaging discussions.
Key topics covered include:
The appendices complement this wealth of information with coverage of XML regular expressions, Base 64 encoding, DTDs (document type definitions), SOAP Messages with Attachments (SwA), RCP/Encoded SOAP messaging, and references to other resources. In short, this accessible reference will give Java developers the tools they need to use J2EE technologies and APIs to integrate both enterprise applications and Web-based applications.

As the author says: "this book doesn't attempt to cover installation, configuration, or deployment except in terms of standard J2EE requirements". I do believe that a decent tech book must have running code to support its explanations and support its value and usefulness. With this text Monson-Haefel is well on his way to win the "Most useless java book of the year" award.
Throughout the book the author maintains a vendor neutral perspective. So if you want to read an introductory text on web-services at leisure, this book is a good choice. Its written in a very comprehensible style and I had no problems understanding the key concepts.
If you are seeking to learn the details of web services beyond introductory concepts then this isn't the book for you.
Most EJB developers are already familiar with Richard Monson-Haefel's work in his OReilly EJB's book. He brings that expertise into the realm of J2EE and Web Services. In fact, this is the first book to talk about Web Services Interoperability Organization's (WS-I) Basic Profile 1.0.
WS-I is an open, industry organization chartered to promote Web services interoperability across platforms, operating systems, and programming languages. WS-I Basic Profile 1.0 is set of recommendations on how to use web services specifications to maximize interoperability. This book delves into the details of J2EE 1.4 and how we as Java developer can build and consume Web Services in a standard way.
The book starts off with an introduction to XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI before jumping into the meat, Java API for XML-Based RPC (JAX-RPC). If you don't have any experience with those technologies, the book offers a great tutorial on those items. I was particularly impressed with the treatment on XML Schemas in the 3rd chapter.
Once the basic groundwork is laid with a solid introduction to XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI, the book jumps right in the JAX-RPC platform. In fact, the middle half of the book is dedicated to JAX-RPC. JAX-RPC is a specification for making remote procedure calls via XML and SOAP over HTTP. JAX-RPC provides an easy to develop programming model for development of SOAP based Web services.Read more ›
Besides, the book repeats same XML document again and again, just wastes paper, and makes the book thick and heavy.
I wish this kind of book would disappear in amazon web site. I wnat to rate this book by 0 star.
This book covers it all, from the details of mapping between Java and WSDL to the proper way to deploy web services, right down to the deployment descriptors.
It's a really well done book. I say this as somone who's currently writing web services and has been through many of the other books.
If you don't know these 4 items, then basically you need to read most of the book, before being able to deploy an application. The chapters span 733 well written pages (plus there are large appendices). So be warned, it is not trivial to develop a Web service. The clarity of the writing helps assimilation, but the sheer bulk of the text seems necessary.
On the positive side, now with BP 1, if you conform to it, your application should indeed work in a diverse environment. Such could not easily be said prior to it. Along the way, you may certainly wonder if the large amount of material needed to be understood is indicative of a still developing field. This barrier may be the single greatest impediment to Web service development. Certainly not the author's fault. He is explaining industry-wide agreed upon standards. Though in the last chapter, he does suggest along these lines that XML deployment descriptors used in J2EE are far too bulky and brittle.
