I like J2EE Web Services:

Java Web Service Development for J2EE Applications

You can also grab the Nutshell book, although that's always a good reference, as opposed to a learning guide:

Java Web Services in a Nutshell

There's also Building Web Services with Java, but I find it's kinda dated, as it was written in 2004:

Building Web Services with Java: Making Sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI

Cheers!

I'm reading this book right now. I think it is awesome ! Quick learning guide, with perfect examples that go throughout the book.

Highly recommended.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Yes, it is a very good book and it achieves what it sets out to do - but it does take some determination, and it does not contain complete code examples, nor does it go into any particular implementation - it is API oriented (which is good because it focuses on what is important and transferable but may leave somebody who wants to quickly get their hands dirty wanting more implementation specific detail).

"Awesome" may be misconstrued by some to mean "as easy as a Head First book" which it most definitely is not. It should be easy to use for an experienced, seasoned developer. The book would be a rough ride for "junior" programmers.

And the other two were published in 2003. So apparently the publishing year is not necessarily a good indicator of quality.

A sample chapter for Java Web Services in a Nutshell can be found here.
