Book Description

22 Feb 2009 059652112X 978-0596521127 1

This example-driven book offers a thorough introduction to Java's APIs for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) and RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS).

Java Web Services: Up and Running takes a clear, pragmatic approach to these technologies by providing a mix of architectural overview, complete working code examples, and short yet precise instructions for compiling, deploying, and executing an application. You'll learn how to write web services from scratch and integrate existing services into your Java applications. With Java Web Services: Up and Running, you will:

  • Understand the distinction between SOAP-based and REST-style services
  • Write, deploy, and consume SOAP-based services in core Java
  • Understand the Web Service Definition Language (WSDL) service contract
  • Recognize the structure of a SOAP message
  • Learn how to deliver Java-based RESTful web services and consume commercial RESTful services
  • Know security requirements for SOAP- and REST-based web services
  • Learn how to implement JAX-WS in various application servers

Ideal for students as well as experienced programmers, Java Web Services: Up and Running is the concise guide you need to start working with these technologies right away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Working through the samples of the book 3 April 2011
I am not sure if any of the other reviewers have worked through the samples on this book but if they did I would be curious how many of them worked.

Firstly the Amazon API has changed drastically so the example for that chapter will not work at all. Secondly the book makes extensive use of the wsgen and wsimport utilities. For many of these he requires that you use EndPoint.Publish to create the wsdl. Then all of a sudden wsgen I think is to be used. This is not mentioned.

The examples are certainly not step by step and have large gaps in them. Usually I take it for granted that O'Reilly books are of a certain quality. This is very poor. Possibly if you download the source code from the web site they will be of a better quality, this is something I am just doing now after making it to page 108 and having yet another example only partially work.

Having compared my code to the sample. Well I would say the code works but it does not describe the steps to run them...Create a Publisher routine for each Example..have it running...keep it running when running wsimport.. wsgen...Concepts could be explained better. Hopefully it will help when taking the Java WS Exam

5.0 out of 5 stars Concerning IDEs 22 Dec 2009
By C. Owen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is more of a footnote to the previous review, rather than a review as such. Helpful anyhow, I hope. The author mentions in his preamble that he has deliberately avoided assuming that the reader is using an IDE (and the variety of IDEs available could confuse matters anyhow). The reason he gives is that IDEs take care of a lot of the nitty gritty for us, which is nice, but in a book for learning the nitty gritty it is better to confront it in all its detail. That way we don't let the ever-so-helpful IDE de-skill us. It's only like pilots wanting to land the plane by skill rather than by wire.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for getting started with Java & SOA 22 Mar 2009
By Assaf
This book is great to get started with SOA and Java. It has plenty of examples, is clear, shows different solutions and is easy to read. A few things I would have liked to see: examples of how SOAP & REST work together and how to choose between the two (it is VERY briefly discussed). One small issue is that it looks like the writer tried to fill space by copying the same source code across several pages. I think snippets would be just as useful. Last item: the book heavily discusses how to use ant/ compilers to generate code. Alas, there is no discussion of how to use each technology with an IDE (eclipse or any other).
