Dear David,

I am new to java web service technology. And I am going to start my final year project related to web service.

Is your book cover web service and its interoperability issue with .NET WCF?

If yes, then is it cover something about Metro?

Arief,

The book does cover standard web services, including how to automatically generate a WSDL (Web Services Definition Language) automatically from a servlet or Session Bean so that their methods can be exposed as web services.

Metro was still under development when the book was written, therefore it is not covered in the book.

From the Metro web site:

"Metro is a high-performance, extensible, easy-to-use web service stack. It is a one-stop shop for all your web service needs, from the simplest hello world web service to reliable, secured, and transacted web service that involves .NET services."

Metro is the web services stack that is used in GlassFish; but it can also be used outside of it.

It's good that it cover web service , because when I read the description in amazon.com. I don't find it mention about web service. Hehehe.

And I just know that we can generate WSDL automatically from servlet and session bean. (*Ahh my web service knowledge is so poor*).

Metro is new, and I just know it 5 days ago (maybe just because I'm not well-informed ). I still don't have time to browse the website (maybe later, after finish my exam ), but it seems pretty interesting.

It would be better if you could add coverage on Metro for next edition of your book. Just my recommendation. Hehehe.

best regards,
Arief
