Hi All,

I am new to Web services.I am looking for a book(JAVA) that explains the Web services architecture,its core concepts and illustrates a full-featured Web services case study example which demonstrates all core components (SOAP, WSDL and UDDI) working together(a pratical book).
Guidance appreciated!

You may consider this book J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel. Those ranchers in Web Services certification are using this.

IMHO "Developing Java Web Services" by Ramesh Nagappan is the most pratical book for developing java web services.
