Is RMH book enough for EE 5 API?

I have read all the previous posts on books to follow for SCDJWS 5 but am still confused.
Most of them have suggested RMH book but it deals with J2EE 1.4 API.
The web service standard covered in RMH are
• XML 1.0
SOAP 1.1
• SOAP Messages with Attachments
• WSDL 1.1
• UDDI 2.0
WS-I Basic Profile 1.0
• JAX-RPC 1.1
• SAAJ 1.2
• JAXR 1.0
• JAXP 1.2

But SCDJWS deals with SOAP 1.2 and WS-I Basic Profile 1.1. Not sure of version for others.

Is it enough to follow RMH book or is there any book on EE 5?

Please help me on this

I'm not sure about other books. But SCDJWS 5 replaces JAX-RPC with JAX-WS, so no need to study JAX-RPC in RMH book.

Thanks Kengkaj. Do you have any idea of SOAP versions. Is it ok if I study SOAP 1.1 covered in RMH and then read the difference between SOAP 1.1 and 1.2?
Also the XML schema version in RMH is 1.0 whereas in SCDJWS is 2.0.
