Product Description

From the Back Cover

"I commend this book to you as your springboard to the future of how to make the Net work." –from the Foreword by Simon Phipps, Chief Technology Evangelist, Sun Microsystems, Inc. This hands–on developer′s guide to Web services prepares you for the next level of distributed computing. The authors clearly show how to implement and deploy Web services using Java while also explaining the fundamentals from the ground up. After providing a detailed introduction to Web services, they walk you through the Web services architecture and its core building blocks, including standards and technologies. You′ll then learn how to develop Web services solutions using Sun Java Web Services Developer Pack (JWSDP 1.0) APIs and how to expose your J2EE applications as Web services. Focusing on concepts, technologies, and practical techniques, the authors: ∗ Discuss the evolving standards landscape for Web services, including the important developments to ebXML ∗ Present the Web services architecture using Java as well as building Web services from existing J2EE applications ∗ Explore and implement a case study using the Sun JWSDP 1.0 APIs ∗ Demonstrate Java Web services interoperability with Microsoft .NET ∗ Walk through the emerging Web services security standards and demonstrate how to implement security in Web services ∗ Provide examples using Sun JWSDP 1.0, BEA Weblogic 7.0, Apache Axis 1.0B3, Systinet WASP 4.0, Exolab CASTOR, IBM XML Security Suite, and Microsoft .NET The companion Web site contains all the code from the examples found in the book as well as updates and links to various tools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of examples - a great tutorial 22 Mar 2003
Format:Paperback
The cover of this book says, "Timely. Practical. Reliable." and that is a good description of the book. It covers the current state of Java APIs for web services, it gives plenty of well thought out examples, and it provides enough information to actually make the alphabet soup of acronyms understandable. The book starts with an introduction to web services. The next section covers web services architecture and the standard technologies of SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI. Interoperability with non-Java applications is demonstrated with a .NET example. The book is written by three Sun employees so it does tend to be a bit Sun-centric as the next sections shows. The Java Web Services Developers Pack (JWSDP) is given plenty of coverage. JAXP, JAXB, JAXM, JAX-RPC, JAXR, may be just acronyms when you get this book but after reading the six chapters covering the JWSDP they will be technologies that you understand. A case study wraps up the six chapters putting the whole thing together. The book ends with a chapter on security and a look at Sun ONE. The book is full of examples demonstrating how to use each of these technologies. When you read a line such as, "The real fun is understanding how the EncryptDecrypt class works," you know you are dealing with authors who love code. For developing Java web services you will be hard pressed to find a better book than this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but not for everyone 20 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The introductory chapters give a very good overview of Web Services and their position in relation to other integration technologies, but to make best use of this book readers will need to be able to (and be inclined to) download and install the tools used in the examples, which start fairly early in the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bored to tears... 27 Aug 2003
By Fabian Gonzales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am new to web services, and purchased this book based on the good reviews it has received. I was quite disappointed in this book, which is both repetitive, drawn-out and shallow in its coverage of web services. Although the book covers most aspects of web service development using JWSDP, as a result almost nothing is covered in great detail, and the book's 700+ pages ultimately provide a dreary drawn-out overview of web services better found elsewhere.
I am now using Apache Axis to create web services, trying to figure out how to create stateful web services. Axis is barely covered by the book, and I cannot find any mention of how to implement stateful web services. As a result, the book stays on the shelf collecting dust, while I google around the Internet for answers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book! 9 Nov 2004
By Alejandro Garrido - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The other reviews saying "Repetitve and shallow content" are all 100% true.

It repeats itself over and over again. Is not only boring but it's also extremely hard to follow.

I'm an experienced java/jsp developer trying to get into web services, and this book only gave me frustration and disapointment.

When I started reading this book I thought that WS technologies were very complex and hard to understand. Then I realized the only thing hard to understand is this book.

I'm taking this book back to the store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book on Java Web services 27 Jun 2003
By Prasad Reddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book has exceeded all my expectations by far in Java Web services. This promising book explains the Web services architecture and its core concepts from beginning to end with solid examples. The content and examples are outstanding and the book flow is "paced" perfectly. I felt like I had strong grasp of each concept at the end of each chapter which makes it a nice learning tool, and a good reference for obtaining cut-and-paste sample code for variety of scenarios.
This is the only Java Web services book that illustrates a full-featured Web services case study example which demonstrates all core components (SOAP, WSDL and UDDI) working together. This makes a perfect ready-to-use example in a real-world project. This book teaches how to use the core Java Web services APIs (JAX-RPC, JAXM, SAAJ, JAXP, JAXB) in depth with examples and plus more it also illustrates how to build Web services using BEA Weblogic, Apache Axis, CASTOR and IBM Web services Security kit in Web services.
In addition to the full-featured Web services architecture case-study using JAX APIs, there are 3 ready-to-use projects, which demonstrates:
- How to build Web services from existing J2EE components.
- How to create Java Web services Interoperability using Microsoft .NET.
- How to build security for Java Web services using IBM security kit.
The end result, you will find this book as a solid text on Java Web services today that provides excellent hands-on examples for Web services architecture in a remarkably readable and in a very engaging developer perspective.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic Tutorial Aggregation 16 Jan 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm really disappointed with the book written by the Sun "Architects". I expect them to show much better expertise on web services, even I admit this may not be the book's intension.
1. The book is like an aggregation of tutorials on basic stuff of each topic. There is no technical depth and you are far from building practical web services after looking at their examples.
2. The concepts are not well explained. Easy topics are repeated while important topics are ignored. It's hard to learn something you don't already know.
3. The book is not well reviewed. There are numerous technical errors and typos.
The book does have a good scope, and can be a convenience of browsing the field, as it puts the related topics under one roof.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money 29 Oct 2005
By Patrick Carroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this, hoping to be able to use it on a web services project I'm doing.

I find it's completely out of date. Both Sun's JWSDP and Apache Axis have moved on since this was written, and you'll get better information from their websites than you'll get from this book.

Don't bother with it.
