I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to use the power of Spring Web Services.
However, compared to other books I have used for learning java technologies, this code sample seemed to have no errors or issues. That was refreshing to me. Possibly because there are no external database dependencies.
Getting the code to run is helpful for starters.
I recommend importing the projects into eclipse so that you can really view the code better and examine the Spring rest Templates functionality. We found importing the code to eclipse by following the instruction in the book took a very short time. Once within eclipse it was much easier to inspect the code.
We used Google Wiztools rest client for interacting with the Spring Web Services server ([...]). Found this to be superior than the Firefox plug-in described in the book. Overall found the book to be very helpful and it may provide some techniques that will help me improve the way I build and deploy restful web services at my job.
The problem with this book is that there are too many things which are just plain missing. For starters, while there aren't errors of gross negligence (it was clearly run through a spellchecker so that there aren't blatantly misspelled words), there are sentences which are incomplete and that makes the material hard to comprehend.
However, to me, the bigger issue is that the "recipes" which are included seem to be missing instructions. Not the kind of omissions like forgetting to include the eggs in a recipe for brownies, more like failing to mention that you need to grease the pan first. Put another way, it's as if the authors have made the assumption that any developer using this reference will automatically infer the items that have failed to be documented.
Purchase the book and use, but beware that it might not offer the quick start that you have come to expect from other reference books on the market today.
As one of the reviewers above observed, it would have been nice to have this book when I was starting out with Spring WS. The writing style is clean and no nonsense and it clearly outlines all of the prerequisites for each recipe. It typically provides all of the maven dependencies required for each recipe, a practice that is becoming more popular with the various online resources.
If you're looking for some quick reference card style instructions for building or consuming web services, this book goes quite a long way toward fulfilling your needs.
