Web Services Essentials Summary

Web Services Essentials by Ethan Cerami

As a developer new to Web Services, how do you make sense of this emerging framework so you can start writing your own services? This text offers programmers both an introduction and a reference to XML Web services, first by explaining the foundations of these distributed services, and then by demonstrating quick ways to create services with open-source Java tools. Web Services make it possible for diverse applications to discover each other and exchange data seamlessly via the Internet. For instance, programs written in Java and running on Solaris can find and call code written in C# that run on Windows XP, or programs written in Perl that run on Linux, without any concern about the details of how that service is implemented. A common set of Web Services is at the core of Microsoft's new .NET strategy, Sun Microsystems's Sun One Platform, and the W3C's XML Protocol Activity Group. In this book, author Ethan Cerami explores four key emerging technologies: XML Remote Procedure Calls (XML-RPC); SOAP - the foundation for most commercial Web services development; Universal Discovery Description and Integration (UDDI); and Web services description language (WSDL). For each of these topics, the book offers a quick overview, Java tutorials with sample code, samples of the XML documents underlying the service, and explanations of freely-available Java APIs. Cerami also includes a guide to the state of Web Services, pointers to open-source tools and a comprehensive glossary of terms.

Web Services Essentials Reviews

"This book is not supposed to be a thorough guide to RPC using XML... however, if you're just getting started creating apps which interact with a remote server over HTTP, using any of the languages, then it gets you started with the fundamentals without confusion or jumping in too deeply without sufficient background knowledge of the procedures used." Verdict: Useful coverage of many aspects of XML service creation if you're unfamiliar with many of the languages. 8/10 Linux Format, August 2002 "This book as a whole covers its material as you would expect. If you are wanting an introduction to creating web services, then it is a good place to start. It assumes a familiarity with Java and XML, and these are covered comprehensively elsewhere in the O'Reilly stable. Overall, it is a solid introduction to web services." Joel Smith, news@UK, December 2002
