Great book for getting started with Java & SOA
on 22 March 2009
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).
