I have been working with XML for a while now, and this book offered a great coverage of most aspects of what XML application developers need to know. I am not able to keep up with everything happening in this very broad part of the industry - and this book provided enough coverage of the areas I'm not able to focus on on a regular basis to help me stay current. I'd recommend it for anyone who's working with specific areas within XML and want to stay current with the broader scope of what is going on. I'd also recommend it for anyone who is new to XML and wants to know the various Java APIs out there.

As happens with so many technical publishers, WROX is now seemingly cashing in on the reputation they established a few years back by writing excellent, well laid-out technical books that appealed to true programmers.
Now, WROX hastily assembles a team of developers, has each one write a chapter in isolation, then releases all of their chapters back to back with little to zero editing, leading to a redundant, incoherent treatment of the subject, with page after page covering the same introductory material with subtle but insignificant differences. An oh, of course, there is the 250 page XML intro filler in the front, and the 300 page XML reference guide filler in the back, brining the actuall useful content page count down even further.
No thought is placed on the overall coherence of the book or it's educational goals.
It's clear that as WROX has grown, they have not been able to maintain the same level of quality they once had. Their editors are clearly not involved in the process, and arent creating anything that amounts to higher learning.

There is NOTHING in this book on the more complex aspects of the subject matter, just a rehashing of what youll find in tutorials and in other generic XML books. My biggest complaint is the completely surface treatment of SOAP. No real mention is made of custom serialization, no examples exist for this.

Look for books from other publishers on this subject that are still "hungry".

WROX is just cashing in at this point.
