This book covers the basic and went into intermediate stuff. But it would be a great book if it has a Web Service project incorporating all that was taught. It did not touch on Web service enhancements and other important technologies. It did a case study on Distributed Processing which is good. I went on the Wrox Web site and could not find the code download, this slowed the pace of my reading because I had to type some of the examples.
