This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
I think it's becos Nimesh Bakshi is reading Richard's J2EE Web Services book and the early chapters of the book discusses about XML in details... :roll:
Actually he should know that the early chapters are just an entrance to the Web Services world... Since Web Services is based on XML, one should know XML in details to get to know about Web Services...
Thanks for your replies. I am sorry for being sounding a novice but I am a novice. I am one who came from the mainframe world to client server world and now trying to break into J2EE world and thought of getting all the required certifications....I passed SCJP and SCWCD recently. SCBCD and IBM XML are lined up for next months for which I am preapring now. I just wanted to know if web service are mere extension of XML or its entirely different thing. I think I am pretty clear with your replies now. Thanks a lot ! Nimesh
