From the Publisher
The Web Services model requires developers to approach enterprise and Internet application development in a radically different way. Developers are scrambling to make sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI and the other technologies that make up this new paradigm.
Key Benefits: --Incredible group of authors from all corners of the Web Services technology sector.
--Details the design and implementation of a production-quality Web Services solution.
--Illustrates both the new aspects of the Web Services paradigm and the ways in which the new model augments existing systems
--Addresses key issues such as security, working with heterogeneous systems, and the open source nature of the SOAP engine.
--Based on the emerging Soap 3.0/Axis implementation and discusses its relationship to the W3Cs XP project.
From the Back Cover
Building Web Services with SOAP, XML, and UDDI assumes proficiency with Java and with distributed computing tools. Throughout the book, examples will be presented using Java and the Apache SOAP platform, although a set of sidebars will address .NET development, which Microsoft developers will use to deploy Web services. The book uses progressive disclosure to present an increasingly complex project as it moves through its development cycle. The final section of the book presents linking the completed project with other systems built in J2EE and .NET.
