Web Services: Principles and Technology

Michael Papazoglou

 

“This book is one of the most comprehensive treatments of web services I have seen. It covers the full gamut of concepts, principles, supporting technology and necessary infrastructure required to build a service-oriented architecture using today’s advanced standards. I highly recommend this book.”

–Dave Chappell: author Enterprise Service Bus

 

“This book, authored by one of the most respected experts in the web services field, is an invaluable reference for both academics and practitioners. Because of its rigor and completeness it is bound to become the definitive guide to web services technologies.”

–Francisco Curbera: manager, Component Systems, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center

Web services represent the next generation of web-based technology. They allow new and improved ways for enterprise applications to communicate and integrate with each other and, as such, are having a profound effect on both the worlds of business and of software development.

In this new book, Michael Papazoglou offers a comprehensive examination of web services which gives you all you will need to know to gain a solid foundation in this area. This book will help you to understand:

  • The nature of web services – what they actually are
  • The underlying concepts, principles, and methodologies of web services
  • The fundamental technologies that underpin the web services paradigm
  • How web services are introduced into organisations, and how they are designed, deployed and used
  • The key standards necessary for the development of web services

Web Services: Principles and Technology is suitable for computer science students and also for professionals who need an introduction to this area. Key features to help reinforce your understanding include: 

  • Spiral approach to build on earlier knowledge as the topics become more advanced
  • Numerous examples throughout demonstrate the practical application of the theory
  • Self-test questions, hints and tips, and discussion topics feature throughout

Michael Papazoglou holds the chair of Computer Science and is director of the INFOLAB/CRISM at the University of Tilburg in the Netherlands.
