I am new to web-services; I have started with RMH book.
After completing XML/SOAP/WSDL (thinking to skip UDDI); book has few chapters for JAX-RPC; should I look into that? Would looking into JAX-RPC help me or I should directly look into JAX-WS (form other book)?

Ch 9. JAX-RPC Overview

Ch. 10. JAX-RPC Service Endpoint

Ch. 11. JAX-RPC EJB Endpoint

Ch. 12. JAX-RPC Client APIs

Ch. 13. SAAJ

Ch. 14. Message Handlers

Ch. 15. Mapping Java to WSDL & XML

Please let me know if I can skip any chapter or reading all would help me for current Java Web Services.

Thanks a lot.

In terms of exam JAX-RPC can be skipped and you can concentrate on JAX-WS but in real world most of the application still using JAX-RPC so it is up to you. If you really want to skip or study.

I may be wrong but this is my opinion.

Thanks for reply....
I asked this because when I prepared for EJB; I started with EJB 2.1 & then looked into EJB 3.
Although there might be good demand for EJB 2.1 in real world, but I realized that I could start directly with EJB 3.

Learning JAX-RPC won't be harmful; but I am bit confused & not able to make decision
Thanks again for reply....

I suggest to understand a bit about JAX-RPC as JAX-WS was built on top of it. Web services hints and tips: JAX-RPC versus JAX-WS, Part 1 is good!
