Hey all.
I want to learn about webservices, and I want to buy a book.
what do you think is better ?
1. J2EE Web Services by RMH
2. Developing Enterprise WebServices An architects guide
I read about them in JavaRanch bunkhouse, both are great books, but it seems to me that the second book discusses more topics than Richard's book.
I want to read an extensive converage about web services technologies (you know, SOAP, UDDI, WSDL ...).
ofcourse, I want to see examples (a lot of them if possible).
any suggestions ?

I read only the first one.

It has lot of coverage and lots of source examples.

You won't go wrong choosing it.
