No. And if you follow the author's blog you will get the impression that he does not intend to update this book (or any of his other books). However that is the correct book (just one of the resources needed) for SCDJWS study as that certifies you J2EE 1.4 web services. If you want to learn about more about Java EE 5.0 Web Services check out: SOA Using Java� Web Services (amazon US; Sample Chapter: Basic SOA Using REST). (Mark D.
