    For those who want to be Professionals...

    ¿Building Web Services and .NET Applications¿ is for the people who want to build real-world apps on their own, not just copy a sample application. This book is for people who would rather have the fundamental knowledge that will allow them to make the right choices in designing and constructing their code. Key strengths of the book include: .NET code samples, emphasis on design and debugging, valuable references of XML technologies, ADO.NET, and ASP.NET, as well as integration of web services with Java. The authors¿ approach of teaching the fundamentals of XML, XSD, DOM, XSLT, SOAP, and .NET is what makes me recommend this book so highly. In doing this, the authors¿ have written a book that prepares you do go out into the real world and make informed decisions, not just cut and paste their techniques into your application. If you need to build a system and want to take advantage of this new technology, and you want to understand how to properly implement .NET, this book is for you. In this book you get the fundamental knowledge, design principles, and code samples that you need to succeed with this new paradigm in programming.

    Great Real World approach

    The authors are well experienced developpers, and it shows in their approach. The book is very well structured, and it paves the way to understanding the concepts, learning the basics, and starting to build real applications through practical approaches and well explained techniques, and well proved advice on design. It is a great jump starter as well as a very good reference for the more experienced .Net developper.

    .NET A-Z, where it came from and what makes it tick

    This book does a wonderful job of explaining complex topics to the reader. It starts with the fundemental building blocks of today's technology, XML/XSL SOAP etc and explains where they fit into the overall picture of building enterprise level applications using web services. This book also has great overviews of the technologies involved which is useful when trying to explain these topics to others (such as less technical supervisors <g>). The strategy of decomposing a complex problem into its parts and explaining each one is applied at all levels of the book, you can read the first part of chapters or the overview, or dive all the way in, and get your hands dirty. This would be a great resource for programmers who are trying to update their skill sets, or as a reference book for any .NET project. Be warned, this is no 'for dummies' book. The chapters are well laid out and modular, so making it useful as a 'reference' type book. The book is an easy read, it is well written, it is not just a technical manual filled with buzzwords and page after page of code, code snippets are targeted and consise. Just enough to show you how to be dangerous with .NET.

    Get .Net coding off the ground

    This book provides a solid foundation for understanding XML, XSLT and SOAP, then goes into practical approaches to applying these technologies to solve real world problems. A solid, well thought out tome...

    real developer's explain .Net

    The book was very good at describing how Microsoft technically arrived at .Net. The book did not tailor itself for a particular skill level. Instead it provided information for every level. If you wanted an overview you could skip the detailed examples. If you wanted to really dive in it gave excellent complex real world examples for utilizing the framework.

    Great Book!!!!

    This is a great book to help understand Web Services and .NET applications. The book starts with an introduction into XML, XSLT, DOM and SOAP. After the introduction chapters it dives right into how Web Services and .NET application fit into the real world. The book is loaded with practical information on designing in the .NET world. Unlike most of the books I¿ve read on .NET this one is not going to end up heating my house this winter.
