I am a Java developer, but fresh to the WEb Services arena, I want to start learning web services.

But when I try to find some good book to get started, i cannot decide upon any of the texts, because the review for them are all mixed and most books are published around 2002-03. I browsed Amazon.

Please, help me get some good Professional book on web services with Java.

Thanks

J2EE Web Services by RMH is probably the best book to date on Java Web Services. Some of the standards are currently being superceded, but it's still very relevant.

If you want a quick read, and a fast overview Java Web Services from O'Reilly explains most of the theory on SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, JAXR, JAXM, JAX-RPC and some other good topics. Not the best book if you're looking for a lot of sample code though...

We really liked Kent Tong's "Developing Web Services with Apache Axis".

The standards in the rmh book is getting old.
Maybe we can find the book in the bunkhouse?
