Authoritative information from the developers who created the SOAP, UDDI, and Web Services technologies.
Details the design and implementation of a production-quality Web Services solution.
llustrates 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. Building Web Services with SOAP, XML, and UDDI assumes proficiency with Java and with distributed computing tools. Examples will be presented using Java and the Apache SOAP platform. The book presents an increasingly complex project as it moves through its development cycle. The final section of the book links the completed project with J2EE and .NET.

Product Details


Product Description

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 W3C’s 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Was 5 Stars a year ago Nov. 21 2003
Format:Paperback
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Overview of Web Services May 26 2002
Format:Paperback
There is a tremendous amount of hype associated with Web Services, making it extremely difficult find a thoughtful perspective. In addition Web Services is a very fast moving target, most publications cannot keep pace with the developments.
I was very impressed by how this book gives an "honest" overview of Web Services and cautions against making unrealistic promises. Additionally the authors are to be commended for not over-focusing on their employers Web Services strategy - the authors are mostly from IBM.
This book is mainly for people who would like a deeper introduction on Web Services and sink their teeth on a number of examples. As with most technical books on new technologies, one cannot expect all the examples to work as described. Also some of the instructions given are more complicated than necessary. I would recommend using this book in conjunction with online research.
Despite the cautionary paragraph above, I highly recommend this book. You will be hard pressed to find another book of this caliber on Web Services
P.S If you are very new to Web Services, a good approach is to reasearch online first. Discover the different approaches i.e. Microsoft and "the rest of the world". Then start with this book and another on Microsoft as well. Launching straight into the book could be confusing.
For the hackers, this book does not go in sufficient depth to start the next enterprise Web Services project. Nor does it compare the approaches with analogous specifications, e.g. CORBA
UPDATE - Sept, 2003 - I recently received an email from a reader asking for an updated opinion of the book. There are now many more books on web services and also shifts in technical directions. The code given by this book will not work with the latest versions of Axis. Perhaps the authors will be coming up with a second edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Suggestion March 21 2002
Format:Paperback
I do not dispute the view that this may be one of the best books
on web services.Yet I have a suggestion to make.The chapters are too long.People like me,who read from cover to cover,would have prefered,say,three chapters on SOAP,WSDL,UDDI,and then and only then three more chapters on Advanced SOAP,Advanced WSDL,and Advanced UDDI.For people who do not read from cover to cover or who would use this book as a reference,this may not be so critical.
This book is unique in the sense that it takes an evolutionary approach to web services by considering where web services came from and where they are going.In this context,the last chapter on the future directions of web services is a very good quo vadis chapter.
It is very unfortunate that most popular books on computers take the opposite approach as if new ideas have no fathers and no sons.This is very dangerous because such an approach can only produce sterile bastards in name of new ideas.
I generally do not review books but with this first review I want to start breaking this rule.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly excellent treatment of Web services Jan. 29 2002
Format:Paperback
This is by far the best book on Web services I have read! There are so many good things going for it. Let's start with the authoring team. I did some research on the Web: three members of the W3C Working Group on XML Protocol (next-generation SOAP), two co-authors of the UDDI specifications, two architects of the next-generation Apache Web services engine (Axis). These people know what they are talking about from both a theoretical and practical standpoint. The book addresses all levels of the Web services technology stack with amazing focus and depth. This book does not just regurgitate the specifications--it goes well beyond them to cover adjacent domains that are relevant. With the knowledge that I have gained from reading this book I feel I am in a much better position to analyze my web services needs, design a service architecture and implement the services necessary to bring it to life. Most importantly, I feel like I have learned how to evaluate the inevitable trade-offs I'll have to make doing real-world development. There are so many examples of this... Chapter 3 does an excellent job of comparing and contrasting RPC-oriented Web services with document (messaging) oriented Web services. This is the kind of out-of-the-ordinary material that imparts truly valuable knowledge on the reader, stuff you will not find while reading the bare specs or one of the quickly hacked together books on Web services. Chapter 5 talks a lot about security, an otherwise missing topic in the Web services space, and about enterprise-quality Web services. I learned some things about configuring application server security that I had missed after two years of J2EE development. Read more ›

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.
