Good Book, March 18, 2003
This book is one of the few books that i have come across that covers the XML structures of the Web-Services so In-depth. Most of the other books starts of directly with the programming aspects. But in this book, there is a very detailed explanation of the SOAP, WSDL and UDDI structures. Such thorough explanation helps any programmer to get a very good understanding on the XML centric architecture of the Web Services framework. The most useful part of the book is the running theory of how web services works.
Also the book does not try to cover too many things at the same time. The simple approach taken by the authors to keep simple things seperate from the more complex APIs provides good advantage to the readers to understand webservices very easily. Probably the authors should come-out with a Volume 2 of the book, which should cover other complex APIs.
All in all a very good reading material....

Goob Book, January 16, 2003
I bought this book in the hope of learning everything about Web Services. But it looks like their is so much to learn than what meets the eye. This book is very good for intermediate programmers only. Advanced concepts like security are left out.
The explanations in the book is very good. The APIs are not all that old, though some of them have been replaced by newer versions. The examples used is very easy to understand and well explained.
There are few places where i found grammatical mistakes. There are some typos too.
Overall a very good book to practically understand webservices.
Good Explanations, January 3, 2003
Though the book has obsolete code, the explanations in the book are very clear and helpful. I guess the authors released the book too early.. The webservices APIs are ever changing and is not yet finalized. Either ways, this book is very good for beginners like me..

An Incomplete book - Too basic and obsolete code, December 26, 2002
- Chapter 1 and 2 First 50 pages on XML and WS basics ! No programmer's view, abolutely waste of time to read.
- Chapter 3, WSDL does'nt provide practical example, How to generate WSDL and no discussion on elements and tools.
- Chapter 4 SOAP uses Apache SOAP (an older version), the code does'nt run ! Missing discussion SOAP - Document style webservices, SOAP security !
- Chapter 5 UDDI does'nt discuss on a real world example.
- Chapter 6 and 7 talks on JSP and Servlets (Meaningless!!!), J2EE Webservices (MISSING ! How to expose EJB as Webservices) ...Unfortunaltely no examples..on how to expose a J2EE Application as Web services !
- Chapter 8 and 9 discussing JAXP and JAXB....missing Web services context !
- Chapter 10 JAXM absolutely no concrete examples..no distinction between JAXM and SAAJ...no example on using a JAXM provider. And the CODE is obsolete for JWSDP 1.0_01 (JAXM 1.1)
- Chapter 11 JAX-RPC absolutely no concrete examples for different client invocation and missing discussion and examples for Dynamic proxy and DII. Code is obsolete for JWSDP 1.0_01 (JAX-RPC 1.0)
- Chapter 12 JAXR reproduces JWSDP 1.0 provided example. No discussion on ebXML RR usage ! Missing discussion on XIndice !
- Chapter 13 JSTL !!! It is not a core component of Java Web services... It is a tag library for JSP !! Author absolutely misleading readers !
A Waste of Money. Authors misleading the readers at many chapters, Too basic example reproducing JWSDP beta examples... No advanced concepts like security and Interoperability.

beginner web services, December 22, 2002
alright, alright, i'll change my review of this book... after tackling a fairly complicated web services project, i found that this book is a bit lacking in some areas... the most obvious to me now is the lack of coverage of Dynamic Proxy and Dynamic Interface Invocation. the coverage of JAX-RPC is also a bit shallow... just one 'hello world' example, and nothing more. try expanding on that material and try returning an array of Strings or ints! sure, you can still easily code a web service from that, but try writing a client for a service that returns a complex type like an array! the book really should have covered dyanamic proxy and Dynamic Invocation Interface in this respect... i mean, you cant realistically expect that a real-world application would settle for handing out stubs and ties for clients to use, eh?
ok so it might still be a great beginner's book -- the authors DO explain clearly what little topics they do cover, after all -- but i have to warn you, you'll outgrow it really quickly when you start dealing with real-world situations! heck the most useful thing to me was the simple hello-world JAX-RPC example -- beyond that i had no more use of the book...i didnt even refer to the book at all when i needed to tackle security, WSDL, and UDDI!
