2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 24 July 2006
This review is from: Programming Web Services with Perl (Paperback)
I agree with the last reviewer's comments about too much time being spent discussing how clever the interface is. I would much prefer that they presented a toolkit whose interface was straightforward. I don't care if there are multiple, clever ways to do the same thing. It just makes the learning process that much more difficult. Because most of the SOAP-related Perl code they show is using SOAP::Lite, the book has to be judged considering the quality of that module and its documentation. With every previous Perl module I've downloaded from CPAN it has been possible to put something together relatively quickly based on the code provide in the SYNOPSIS section. This was not true with SOAP::Lite. I bought this book expecting it to make up for the poor documentation provided in the PODs for the SOAP::Lite package, but I found it did not help much. Disappointing.
