The Barnes & Noble Review
According to a December 2001 research report, the market for web services platforms, development suites, and management tools will grow from $380 million in 2001 to more than $15.5 billion in 2005. Even if you take that with a grain of salt, or two, XML-based web services are going to be huge -- especially internally focused web services that address enterprise data integration.

In XML & Web Services Unleashed, leading web services developer and industry analyst Ron Schmelzer brings together a team of experts to cover XML web services from every perspective: standards, platforms, trends, coding, and more.

They begin with a comprehensive course in XML-based development, from validation and schemas to parsing with DOM and SAX, transformations with XSLT, formatting with XSL-FO, even SVG vector graphics. They move on to web services architecture and the key "building block" standards that make web services practical: SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI.

They review web services from both Microsoft's and Sun's perspectives, then walk through sample implementations for both e-commerce and wireless. Last but not least, they preview tomorrow's Semantic Web, which builds machine-processable meaning into data and applications -- enabling web services to accomplish more than ever before.
