A little too brief for me, I would have wanted more discussion on what a good REST API looks like as well as related topics like JSON. The examples are quite abstract, and there's not enough hand-holding on getting setup with IDEs/Servers etc.

2.0 out of 5 stars but does a poor job explaining a lot of the mechanics of the ... 22 Jun. 2016
By Karottop - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've never programmed web services in any language. I bought this book to learn REST and SOAP. This book covers those concepts, but does a poor job explaining a lot of the mechanics of the underlying classes or even the reasons for their existence. Much knowledge is assumed with this book. I found myself googling a lot of jargon and new Classes, which indicates a book lacking explanation. To a trained eye, this book might seem concise and potent. To a beginner it feels like a guy with ADD and 5 cups of coffee was trying to explain Java web services to an equally knowledgeable friend. Great for experienced web service developers, not for beginners trying to build a foundational knowledge of how the services operate from the ground up. As another reviewer mentioned, I would have liked it more if he just picked one topic. To the book's credit, I did like all the code examples. I just like a more healthy mix of both and explaination.

*Note: Many of the reasons I disliked this book could be the same reasons why another enjoyed it. As are the nature of reviews, this is my subjective opinion. I suggest you read other reviews as well before making your decision about this book as you may find that IT IS for you*
5.0 out of 5 stars Useful book. 19 Sept. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was exactly what I was looking for. I had to develop an adapter to connect with a SOAP service. However, the implementation should be running over HTTPS service, and change servers dynamically on run-time. Because I am kind of new in terms of Java EE development this book help me to understand the steps that I have to follow, the possible configurations, and the different approaches.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good book only if you want to see the variety of possible WS implementatons 11 Oct. 2013
By Florin Vasile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Instead of concentrating on a way to build efficient WS with standard Java Technologies this book tries to touch every possible way to create a web service with standard and non-standard technologies.

I would recommend concentrating more on Java EE and ways to build highly efficient web services with the standard technologies instead of exploring Restlet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 24 Sept. 2014
By X Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I started reading the book, I felt boring because it takes 10+ pages to "talk". However, later I found this is a great book: it clearly describes the differences between REST & SOAP webservice with detailed code example. The best thing is the book covered almost all details with code examples. This makes us easy to understand and to apply it in real world. I strongly recommend this book if you want to learn REST & SOAP webservice.
