You can admit it. You’re experienced with Java (or maybe C++), but you’ve never built a web service. That’s OK: Most developers haven’t. In fact, much of the Java technology needed to build web services has only just arrived. As has this outstanding guide to building Java web services. If you’re ready to learn now, your timing is perfect.
Java Web Services for Experienced Programmers makes the most of the DEITEL LIVE-CODE approach: thousands of lines of working, color-coded, downloadable code, plus screen captures of all output, and hundreds of practical tips. You’ll start with a complete grounding in XML, from basic markup through DOM and XSLT. Here, the authors give you a first taste of JAXP, which includes XSLT support; later, they turn to Java’s JAX Pack with a vengeance, with full chapters on JAX-RPC, JAXR, and JAXM.
The book walks through deploying the same web service on multiple SOAP platforms, from Apache AXIS to IBM’s WSTK. You’ll also find extensive coverage of security, including urgently needed specs like XKMS, SAML, and XACML. The book concludes with a seriously nontrivial case study: You’ll build both a significant web service and multiple applications that consume it. Bill Camarda
