Building Web Services with Java: Making Sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI. 2nd Edition by Steve Graham, Doug Davis, Simeon Simeonov, Glen Daniels, Peter Brittenham, Yuichi Nakamura, Paul Fremantle
In Building Web Services with Java, Second Edition, architects from IBM who helped create the core Web services standards explain how to use those standards to build Web services applications. They go beyond the specifications and provide meaningful insights into both how and why these tools were designed as they are. This revised edition covers the new SOAP 1.2 and WSDL 1.2 standards, as well as other technologies developed since the first edition was published, including the Java Web Services Developer Pack from Sun and the powerful Apache Axis Web services engine. Throughout the book the authors focus on practical examples of each concept and provide a running example illustrating a full enterprise solution.
