While this book is directed at the programmer, it is not entirely dependent on the .NET platform, despite its title. The first 4 chapters concern the design process; independent of any implementation. These chapters are a good description of the various top-down phases that any programmer can use. The rest of the book deals with coding. But it leads off with a chapter on Web Services. Which talks about how its use can aid a distributed implementation of the solution. You get a brief exposure to the amazing verbosity of Web Services Description Language. Perhaps this chapter may have the most appeal to some readers. It really distinguishes the book from others that discuss using .NET as a development area. If you are wondering how to jump into Web Services, try here. The discussion is concise enough to have merit, if you are unsure about committing enough time to a full Web Services approach. Later chapters continue this study in more detail.
