Java Web Services: Up and Runningby Martin Kalin
Synopses & Reviews
Learn how to develop REST-style and SOAP-based web services and clients with this quick and thorough introduction. This hands-on book delivers a clear, pragmatic approach to web services by providing an architectural overview, complete working code examples, and short yet precise instructions for compiling, deploying, and executing them. Youll learn how to write services from scratch and integrate existing services into your Java applications.
With greater emphasis on REST-style services, this second edition covers HttpServlet, Restlet, and JAX-RS APIs; jQuery clients against REST-style services; and JAX-WS for SOAP-based services. Code samples include an Apache Ant script that compiles, packages, and deploys web services.
The second edition of Java Web Services keeps the hands-on, example-driven approach, but makes code samples easier to use by providing Ant scripts for the main examples. Also, the author is more forthright in assessing the Java technologies. For example, there are three obvious ways that a Java programmer might deliver a RESTful service: as a standard Java servlet (published in the usual way with a web server such as Tomcat), as a JAX-WS WebServiceProvider, or as a JAX-RS resource and he will rank them accordingly.
