If you want to use today’s best available technologies for building today’s best Java-based web services, read Java Web Services Unleashed. This book combines proven tools like Apache SOAP, JavaServer Pages, and servlets with the new state-of-the-art. In fact, it offers some of the first detailed, developer-oriented coverage we’ve seen on emerging tools like the Web Services Flow Language (WSFL) and Web Services Invocation Framework (WSIF)
Coauthor Benoît Marchal, whose contributions to this book are of exceptional quality, walks you through two detailed case studies: an inventory management application utilizing JSP, and a stock-trading application built with EJB. The book also includes more than 150 pages of example-rich coverage of Sun’s brand-new JAX Pack -- JAXP, JAXB, JAXR, JAXM, and JAX-RPC. These tools have been eagerly awaited, to put it mildly, and developers will devour these chapters ravenously.
Incidentally, even if you’re pretty sure you know what web services are about, a close reading of the first two chapters of this book will repay you with a far clearer understanding of where they fit, why they matter, and how they enable business models. The scenarios actually make intuitive sense, which isn’t always the case in these discussions! (Bill Camarda)
