I have two questions actually. 1) Is there any coverage with regards to web services in your book. I heard at least in the financial services industry, there is a lot of gui work done using .net(ASP, C# etc) and the server side stuff using web services+J2EE,EJB etc. 2) what gives a motivation to write a book( is it money or personal satisfaction or both).

The answer to your first question: yes I do address web services in the middle chapters of my book. Second question's answer: I write books because I have information I want to share with others. For me writing is a passion, also, since I am a professor of Computer Science, I feel a large obligation to educate and help. Writing a book for money, if there is money involved, where is it? I write becasue I love to. I also love to learn, and you do learn by writing both articles and books. Check out my articles on Developershed.com and WebSphere Journal, beginning in April. Good to hear from you. Dwight Peltzer
