Perspectives on Web Services: Applying SOAP, WSDL and UDDI to Real-World Projects (Springer Professional Computing) Hardcover – September 26, 2005
"Web Services have emerged as a powerful tool for building complex but adaptive and agile enterprise systems in heterogeneous environments, enabling effective inter- and intra-enterprise integration. Perspective on Web Services: Applying SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI to Real-World Projects by Olaf Zimmermann, Mark R. Tomlinson, and Stefan Peuser contains erverything you need to know about developing and deploying Web services-oriented enterprise applications. Whatever your role in a Web Services application project - for example, software architect, developer, project manager, or systems administrator - you will find useful information in this book. (...) The authors combine their practical experience in Web service-oriented enterprise applications with reviews and a hands-on examination of the latest Web service specifications and technologies and IBM product capabilities."

From the Back Cover
"The ongoing Web services trend is ubiquitously featured already – many publications on Web services exist. The first wave of enterprise-scale applications and projects exploiting the benefits of the technology is on its way.
However, there is still a lack of experience in the field – technical decision makers are struggling about when to apply which elements of the technology, and how to do so. This is a variation of the well-known "chicken and egg" problem: no project without an architectural decision, no architectural decision without experience, no experience without a project. This book provides technical guidance and helps the reader to cut the Gordian knot."
- Seven – sometimes controversial – Perspectives on Web services, covering the entire project lifecycle from opportunity identification to design, development, and deployment
- Introduction to Web services architectures as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and their Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) instantiations
- Understanding the Web services building blocks SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI
- Business scenarios and functional/non-functional requirements for Web services solutions
- Patterns for Web services projects and related architectural decisions
- Sample implementation platform: IBM WebSphere Studio integrated development environment and IBM WebSphere Application Server Version 5
- Full-scope implementation of an end-to-end case study, including hands-on instructions for development and deployment
- Apache SOAP 2.3 as well as JAX-RPC programming through JSR 109 and Apache Axis
- Interoperability between Microsoft .NET C# and Apache SOAP
- Runtime topologies for Web services solutions, deployment to WebSphere, transport layer and Web services security
- Best practices for design and management of Web services projects
- Trends such as Grid computing and the semantic Web
- Project-centric approach including lessons learnt and pitfalls to avoid
- Many sample project deliverables, including checklists to decide whether Web services are an appropriate solution to a given business problem
- Guide to W3C recommendations and other Web services specifications
- Full source code for a complete reference implementation
- Many rich illustrations, website support, and extensive pointers to other Web resources
This book will provide everything that a project team needs to know about design, development and deployment of Web services with the IBM WebSphere product family. Taking a realistic and pragmatic view on the subject, this book will be an essential part of every Java Web service developer’s bookshelf.
Meet fictitious members of the target audience as they find their way through a first-of-a-kind Web services project, and hear their opinions on the topic at hand. Benefit from the real-world experience the authors gained during numerous client projects and workshops.

While this book is WebSphere-oriented in the development examples, the accompanying explanation provides ample information to permit the reader to adapt them to other Java tools. Developers living in the C++ and .NET worlds might benefit from an additional book, but the practical explanations and breadth of coverage of this one make it valuable to anyone working (or just trying to come to grips) with web services.
I was pleased to see that the next chapter "Operational Perspective" actually deals with questions regarding deployment and configuration. This is something most books are missing and many projects underestimate the importance of these aspects for a successful rollout.
Finally after reading two very useful chapters (written in an enjoyable style), I've decided to give the other chapters also a try and I wasn't disappointed. This book covers all important aspects for a successful webservice project and I strongly recomment it if you are going to start such a project.
During my time as a technical lead at Hewlett-Packard, I've got the opportunity to participate a pretty expensive software architect workshop. I was pleased to see lots of "Does and Dont's" I've learned in this workshop in the "Architecture Perspective" chapter of this book.
I finally ended up in reading all chapters of the book. I haven't read all pages of this book because of my previous knowledge and because of the excellent offered shortcuts within this book. But the time I've spent reading the rest was a rewarding investment. Whatever role you are going to play in a webservice project: you will find something useful within this book.
And finally don't forget: even Grady Booch thinks this book is a must-have. He wrote a nice forword for the book.
Having said that working the examples into version 6 format is good practice and not too much sweat.
This book provides all the coverage you need if you are dealing with the IBM WebSphere kit (all the IBM Redbooks are also a great help!)
