I'd like to learn how to implement contract-first web services. Can anyone recommend any books that would help me along?

Contract first development of web services means that you write the WSDL and associated XML schema by hand and then use, for instance, wsimport to generate code and additional artifacts.
An article describing contract first development can be found here: http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/totd_18_how_to_add
Two books that dedicate at least a section to contract first development are:
Java Web Services Up and Running
Apache CXF Web Service Development
Best wishes!
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
