Hello Mr.Mark D. Hansen,

I have the following quries,

1.Is this book is for beginners?

2.Do it covers basic XML,Schema and Webservices?

3.Do it covers Java webservices and SOA elaboratly, and what about .net webservices?

4.Do you mention anything about the future of SOA.., ex: BPM and SOA?

5.Is this book teaches, How SOA is used to solve integration problems?

6.who can read this book? DO we need the prior knowledge of Architecture and design patterns or just xml and Java is enough?

Thank you

Hi - thanks for the questions! See my answers inline.

> 1.Is this book is for beginners?
Yes - I hope so See this post.

> 2.Do it covers basic XML, Schema and Webservices?
It covers basic through advanced Java Web Services. It does not teach XML or XML Schema.

> 3.Do it covers Java webservices and SOA elaboratly, and what about .net webservices?
.NET is not covered. This is a book focussed on Java.

> 4.Do you mention anything about the future of SOA.., ex: BPM and SOA?
Yes, Chapter 11 looks at one way we might continue to improve the ease with which a SOA can be constructed on top of Java EE.

> 5.Is this book teaches, How SOA is used to solve integration problems?
Yes, the book focuses on SOA Integration and the "Start from WSDL and Java" programming problem, which is key for successful SOA-based application integration.

> 6.who can read this book? DO we need the prior knowledge of Architecture and design patterns or just xml and Java is enough?
Just XML and Java (intermediate) is enough.

does this book covers or describes each different major software vendors product that provides SOA solutions and the advantages or the disadvantages between each of these products?
such as IBM's WebSphere Process Server Or BEA's solution

The book does not cover specific products (e.g., WebSphere vs. WebLogic vs. JBoss). It is focussed on the Java specifications - JAX-WS 2.0, JAXB 2.0, JSR-181, and JSR-109 that are common to all Java EE 5 compliant Web Servers.

The code in the book will run on any Java EE 5 compliant application server. I have tested in with Suns GlassFish reference implementation.

Here is a list of app servers that are certified as Java EE 5 compatible. More products are on track to join the list (e.g., JBoss is in beta), so keep checking.

BTW, both BEA and Oracle use the GlassFish implementation of JAX-WS 2.0 in their JavaEE 5 products.

Have you explained clearly How to setup workspace? I mean all the necessary configurations,classpaths and jars to run a SOA webservice Example?

These configurations made lot of people lazy to learn the webservice and SOA? Have you made it easy?

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
