I've seen references in the forum mentioning the use of Martin Kalin's book "Java Web Services: Up and Running" as a good jumping off book into the wonderful world of Web Services.
I've been working through it and hit a stumbling bump in chapter 2 (specifically instructions leading up to and including the Wrapped Style client code that's presented on pages 41-42) that uses the Amazon E-Commerce site as a model for building clients against the wsdl generated access code.
Can others here who have used this book vouch for the reliability of this example code? I'm getting an error:
which I believe indicates that the item that I'm attempting to use as a search index (Books) is no longer valid? I've tried this with my code and the example code directly for the book.
Sorry to be posting this here, I can't find a forum specifically for this book (if there is one you know of, please send the link my way).
thanks in advance for any help on this,

Given that nobody had anything to contribute to this topic, I'll answer it myself and provide pointers for others who might be using this book.
The example I'm sighting from this book is now out of date due to an added security layer added by the Amazon ECommerce API.
For those interested a couple of additions need to be provided to source and dependencies to support this.
I am attempting to run this book exercise and have followed the steps outlined in the above recommendation. my client file looks like this: when I run the client java -cp .;commons-codec-1.3.jar AmazonClientW nothing gets printed and I dont get any exceptions. any one have any suggestions why?
