Still a good reference. Funny someone wrote they had yet to find anything of value in it because just the other day I needed a concise review of XML schema. I found the XML primer from this book to be the best most clearly written explanation I had seen. And it cover a lot of ground in relatively few pages. Giving a book 1 star because it is dated is near sighted. Yes, look at the publication dates because things change fast. But when this book came out it was one of the better ones and so I think the authors deserve credit for that. It offers a nice explanation of the layers of web services, the various components that work together. While some things change, many things really just grow more complex and the latest explanation may not be the best. I can see dropping it a star but a good resource it was and still is as i noted.
I was thinking about the value of older computer books the other day and I realized, sometimes the perspective is different in an older book so things that are no longer explained much are discussed with more detail. For example, a 1996 book on learning Java is obviously of no value, right? Well I thought so also. Then as i was going to toss it, I read the last chapter describing in great detail how Java works under the hood. I have NEVER seen such a complete techincal discussion down to the bits and bytes in any other book. And those things are still true today. So an older book can go into details you may not find in a new book because things taken for granted now were being explained for the first time then. Keep the better older ones, they can still help you as this one did me.

This was the best book on Web Services when it was released in 2001. More recent books by Wiley and MKP will serve you better.

It's hard to read anything today without running into a lot of hype and buzzwords. This is especially true with Web Service technologies. I've never had a technical book that cut to the chase and told me what I needed to know like this one does. I'm sure I'll read it cover to cover and be glad I did. Great job to everyone involved!

I read 5 books on Web Services using Java. This one is the best. The authors have comprehensive knowledge on Web Services. Their understanding of XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI and Axis implementation is impressive. It's good both for beginners and advanced users. Hope they will come up with a revision soon after Axis1.1 is out.

I recently started my first Web Services project and had some ramp-up to do with my knowledge on the subject -- I consider myself being pretty well into J2EE, but the SOAP/WSDL/UDDI triad was something unknown. I picked three books, O'Reilly's "Java Web Services", Wrox' "Professional XML Web Services", and this book.
"Building Web Services with Java" beats all the others as an introduction to the mindset of Web Services. The straight-forward but not overwhelmingly hardcore approach suits me and my background. The authors present different angles, alternatives and give meaning to what they are describing. Especially the chapter describing UDDI was the best introduction I've bumped into.
Even though I gave it 5 stars, I won't say you'll suffice with this book and only this book. This is an introduction with a great coverage, not a programming reference; If you're looking for one, pick another bible to go with this one.
