Thomas,

What audience is the book targetted for ? Java developer, Manager, .NET coder, CEO ?

Is it comparable to Richard Monson-Haefel's J2EE Web Services ? Richard's book has gotten some flack for being purely a rehash of publically available specs.

Regards,

Pho

Pho,

The book is mainly for architects, it does not include code.

It also does not cover Java-specific development tools or platforms. It's focus is on design, architecture, migration, and best practices related to XML and Web Services only. From what I've been told so far, the design strategies and architectures are of interest to architects, and the migration planning and best practices chapters are of targeted at managers and other IT decision-makers. We've received positive feedback from developers about the SOA modeling tutorial. Overall, though, this is not a typical programming guide. Even though it covers a number of specifications, it doesn't copy from or rehash these in any way.

This thread might be useful for you to have a look about the audience targeted by the book... In general, as Mr.Thomas has just mentioned above, the book is for decision makers such as architects and I.T. managers..
