The WebServicesFaq points to lots of introductory articles and such.

The WebServicesLinks hast a list of relevant books, as does the Bunkhouse.

I like the J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel. It's a very good book to understand web services, but it's a bit outdated though.

That would be hard, not knowing what you're most interested in. But the Bunkhouse entries all have reviews attached to them, so you should be able to get a feeling of what a book is about. There are also Amazon links, where you can find more information about each book.

Let's keep this thread to the original question of books. If you have other web service questions, feel free to start a new topic.

J2EE Web Services (RMH; Richard Monson-Haefel) (amazon US) is a bit out of date but it is unique in that it covers the Java aspect as well as the services aspect - though many do not find it an easy read.

SOA Using Java� Web Services (amazon US) is more up to date but is much more focused on the Java API coverage, so the non-Java aspects of web service design and development can suffer a bit.

To learn about services in general (without any reference to the implementation platform (no Java)):
SOA Principles of Service Design (amazon US)
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA): Concepts, Technology, and Design (amazon US)

RESTful Web Services (amazon US) presents an alternative implementation strategy. While many of the code samples are in Ruby, the Java-based Restlet is introduced.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
