Product Description


“….something of a bible…”(Software World)

From the Back Cover

"This book is an invaluable resource for developers building XML Web Services with Microsoft .NET."
-Rob Howard, Program Manager, ASP.NET Team, Microsoft Corporation

"Given the flood of cookie-cutter books, it's refreshing to find a technical book written with such an optimal mix of clarity, conciseness, and quality as this one."
-Michael Lane Thomas, .NET Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation

Microsoft's .NET Framework opens up a whole new world of Web services. This comprehensive guide shows you how to get a handle on the new .NET and XML Web services tools - and get up to speed on building your own next-generation Web applications. Using plenty of ASP.NET examples in Visual Basic .NET and C#, .NET expert Bill Evjen explains step by step how to construct and consume both simple and complex Web services. Along the way, he demonstrates how to incorporate many key technologies into your applications, including WSDL, UDDI, Disco, SOAP, authentication, encryption, ADO.NET, and .NET Remoting. Evjen also offers practical tips and techniques for error and exception handling, optimization, and other advanced issues.

You will learn how to:
* Build XML Web services using ASP. NET and Visual Basic .NET or C#
* Consume Web services in a Web or Windows form
* Describe and discover Web services using WSDL, UDDI, and Disco
* Strengthen Web services by expanding SOAP messages
* Lock in Web services security with authentication and encryption
* Tap in to SQL Server data for your Web services using ADO.NET

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for developers of all levels Oct. 4 2002
Any book on ASP.NET will mention Web services development, but "XML Web Services for ASP.NET" is an entire book dedicated to explaining all of the different sub-areas within the technology platform. And very well done. It's written by everyone's friend in .NET, Bill Evjen, one of the most outspoken advocates of .NET technology around.
The book is outstanding and takes an in-depth look at XML Web services, and Microsoft's specific implementation of the paradigm. All of the major considerations are explained well and adequately to become productive in developing your own library of Web services, or by extending the functionality of your applications.
The book's tone is very friendly, and non-intimidating, so it's a very easy, quick read. Bill also uses lots of practical analogies to make the more complex topics relevant, so it's an added bonus that this book appeals to the beginning as well as the seasoned developer.
Bill discusses areas critical to a thorough understanding of WS technology using .NET such as SOAP, UDDI, remoting, security, authentication, performance, and client development for calling an XML Web service from an ASP.NET WebForm or Windows Form, VB 6.0 app, or an ASP 3.0 Web page. The book also features some really good appendices, especially those on .NET's Web service classes, and an XSD primer for schema development.
The book is not about ASP.NET development, and so providing the reader has some experience with building third-generation Web applications, gets right to the meaty stuff. The chapters are short and to the point, and Bill's overview of ADO.NET is one of the better ones I've read in recent times. The most outstanding thing to me is that Bill liberally uses real-world code samples, with all code presented in both Visual Basic .NET and C#.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for 70-310 exam Aug. 23 2002
By A Customer
I was studying for the Microsoft exam 70-310 on XML Web Services and they suggested this MS press book on web services, but the MS press book is ONLY in C# even though the exam they want you to take is for Web services in VB.NET! Had to return that book. I got this one instead. I was happy to see that this book covered XML Web services in both VB.NET and C# and I was able to use this book to study for my exam. Passed!

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not a good choice July 8 2002
By A Customer
When I purchased this book, hope will find examples, information about Web Services to help my projects. But I only found identical MSDN information. I could not believe my eyes but several of sentences was same with MSDN. If you want to buy a Web Services book this should not be one. I have purchased several books on XML Web services and this one was the most identical (also just copy and paste) one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of 3 books I bought July 4 2002
I have purchased three books on XML Web services and this one was the most comprehensive and got right to the point on how to not only build webservices, but also to how consume them in my applications (.NET, VB and classic asp). It is interesting that this is such a talked about topic everywhere, but there are not too many books out on this subject. You won't do yourself wrong by getting this book.
