Inderjeet Singh is lead architect on the Java BluePrints Team, where he works with other architects and engineers to define best uses of Java technologies for application design. Beth Stearns is the principal partner of ComputerEase Publishing, a computer consulting firm she founded in 1982. Among her publications are Java Native Interface in The Java Tutorial Continued (Addison-Wesley), “The EJB Programming Guide” for Inprise Corporation, and “ Understanding EDT, ” a guide to Digital Equipment Corporation's text editor.
Written by Sun Microsystems' Java™ BluePrints team, Designing Web Services with the J2EE™ 1.4 Platform is the authoritative guide to the best practices for designing and integrating enterprise-level Web services using the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) 1.4. This book provides the guidelines, patterns, and real-world examples architects and developers need in order to shorten the learning curve and start building robust, scalable, and portable solutions.
The authors use the Java Adventure Builder application to bring the design process to life and help illustrate the use of Java APIs for XML Processing (JAXP), Java APIs for XML-Based RPC (JAX-RPC), and other Web service and Java-XML technologies.
Key topic coverage includes:
Designing Web Services with the J2EE™ 1.4 Platform provides the insight, advice, and detail that make it easier to create effective Web service applications using the J2EE 1.4 platform.

Straightforward architectural overview of Java Web Services,
This review is from: Designing Web Services with the J2EE(TM) 1.4 Platform: JAX-RPC, SOAP, and XML Technologies (Paperback)This book is primarily geared towards reader at the architectural end of the spectrum. Code samples are few and far between, and the illustrations are primarily UML. That's not a bad thing, it's just a matter of what you are looking for. Though even for an architecture work I would like to see a little more code (thus the four stars instead of five.)
The book starts with XML basics, then spends the largest portion of the book on SOAP and JAX-RPC, then finishes off with an excellent chapter on security issues. There is some mention of mobile, but nothing in depth.
I recommend this book to Java architects who want to learn more about this topic. Front line engineers will probably want to concentrate on API centric books on Java Web Services, most likely from O'Reilly.

A good architectural approach to Java web services...,
This review is from: Designing Web Services with the J2EE(TM) 1.4 Platform: JAX-RPC, SOAP, and XML Technologies (Paperback)If you're looking for a good architectural treatment of web services in Java, you'll want to look at Designing Web Services with the J2EE 1.4 Platform - JAX-RPC, SOAP, and XML Technologies by Inderjeet Singh, Sean Brydon, Greg Murray, Vijay Ramachandran, Thierry Violleau, and Beth Stearns (Addison Wesley).

As with most books put out by Sun, this is an authoritative guide. The quality of the material is high, and you are getting it "straight from the source", as they tout their books. While they cover the subject well, it's not the type of book that the hard-code developer geek would want. It seems to target more of the system architect position... the person who would be responsible for designing the overall approach to a system and specifying the... Read more

An excellent book - but fast becoming obsolete,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Designing Web Services with the J2EE(TM) 1.4 Platform: JAX-RPC, SOAP, and XML Technologies (Paperback)This is a well written book that covers the basics of Java Web Services according to Sun (i.e. from a Java perspective). However - things have moved on since the publication of this book 4 years ago. Will still be a good book to use for the Sun Certified Web Services Developer exam until the exam is updated. May want to look at more recent books.
