I got books about Java and Web Services (below)

XML programming: Web Application and WEb Srvices with JSP,
XML Web Services Professional Projects,
Pro XML Dev w/Java technology,
Building Web Services with Java

but it published around 2003, 2002.... is it worthwhile to read and learn from it or I am just wasting my time? Many thanks.

Nelson

as a follow up... according to WEB SERVICES FAQ... JAX-RPC, JWSDP, Axis 1, Apache SOAP are now obsolete... and those are discussed on those books I mentioned. That's why I am asking if I am just wasting my time reading it or at least if I will gain something as a starter to web services, thanks..

In addition to those being obsolete tools, SOAP itself is sort of a dinosaur - while it works, and has its advantages, these days the first approach to developing WS is REST. Unless you have a good reason to want to learn SOAP, learn about REST first. And only then read about recent versions of SOAP, WSDL, WS-Security (and maybe BPEL).
