A True Architecture Focused Book!
on September 26, 2003
This book delivers what the authors intended to deliver which is valuable discussions around the pros and cons of the current Web Services technologies and what architects need to understand as they make systems architecture decisions with their Web Services implementations.
This book is broader than the concrete examples that show the individual technologies in use. It is important to show these, but what is more important, in my opinion, is the accompanying sections that discuss the design tradeoffs when using the particular technologies that every good architect needs to be cognizent of if they are truly doing their job.
Yes, the content is Sun implementation focused but insightful readers will get over their biases (for or against!) and just see these sections as concrete examples of the standards/technologies at work.
