Dear Partners:

Althoug it is not a certification issue, I'd appreciate your advice on the following issue:

We have a request to �read� a web service from a 3rd party vendor to integrate in our current system, which is Tomcat 4, JDK 1.4.2, Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2.

We are new on Web Services, and do not know yet the Web Service Specs.

We appreciate to let us know if there are any constraints in our current architecture.

Also, what is the best bibliography you recommend for not only reading but also the certification itself.

Thank you.

As your code is a WS client, it doesn't matter which version of the servlet API the container it runs it supports. It's perfectly possible to run a WS client under JDK 1.4.

A number of WS books are listed in the WebServicesLinks FAQ page, and the WebServicesFaq page also points to a number of helpful resources.
I agree. Here's the link:
