Publisher Comments:

"Java Web Services Unleashed" explores everything Java developers need for Web service development. Starting with the business considerations and roles of service-related technologies within the Java architecture, the authors then demonstrate applications using the "pillars" of Web service creation: SOAP, UDDI, and WSDL. Next, the book introduces the JAX* pack - a set of Java APIs for XML programming that ease and enhance service development - using real-world examples explaining the importance of each JAX* API. Later chapters include a series of larger case studies of service development using many Java technologies including JSP and EJB.
