Hello folks,

I have a basic question in Hibernate. Does Hibernate automatically rollback transactions if any exceptions occur during the transaction? If so, why do programmers usually catch exceptions and rollback explicitly? (Is it just for illustrating that thrown exceptions should be handled at some place in the application?)



Thanks,
Chandra
@Peter Johnson: Thank you for your response. Yes, I saw that discussion but the discussion didn't address Pro Apache Ant, so, I thought of asking which one is better. I appreciate your help.

@Jeanne Boyarsky: Thank you very much for your response and suggestion
I am going to order "ANT in Action" right away. Thank you once again Jeanne. I appreciate your help.

Hello all,

I am new(beginner) to ANT. Could anyone please recommend/suggest the better of these two books to learn ANT in a slightly quicker way(oriented towards web applications development):

1. Pro Apache Ant by Matthew Moodie
2. Ant in Action by Steve Loughran, Erik Hatcher

I appreciate your help.

Thank you,

Hello James,

This question may be annoying but I have to ask this question at some point of time. After reading the above two books, which book(s) do I need to read in order to learn web services programming.

Thank you James.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Compass

Thank you for your suggestion James. Are those books suitable for beginners to web services like me? Also, it looks like those books do not cover the technical aspects of web services like UDDI, SOAP and WSDL (Please correct me if I am wrong) which I am interested in learning. Thank you very much for your help

Thank you Ulf Dittmer for your suggestions. I saw the link you provided but most of the books there are also outdated according to amazon.com.

Could you please suggest me a good source(even something available on the web) to learn web services? Please help me. Also, is the book "J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel" totally useless to learn web services?

Thank you very much

Regards,
Chandra

Hello all,

First of all I apologize for bringing this question/topic. You might have heard this question many times. But, I don't have any better option and my only hope is posting here at Javaranch as I heard there are a lot of Java experts here who could help newbies like me.

I have decent experience in Java but I don't have any experience in Web services. I have/want to learn Web Services and I want to buy a book on web services. I found that a lot (almost all) of books on web services in amazon.com had mixed reviews. So, I was unable to decide which book to buy to learn web services. I found these two books to have better reviews when compared to others:

1. Perspectives on Web Services: Applying SOAP, WSDL and UDDI to Real-World Projects
by Olaf Zimmermann, Mark R. Tomlinson , Stefan Peuser

2. J2EE Web Services: XML SOAP WSDL UDDI WS-I JAX-RPC JAXR SAAJ JAXP
by Richard Monson-Haefel

Are any of the above two books good for a beginner in web services? Could anyone please recommend me any book for learning Java based web services?

Thank you very much and once again I apologize for this question.

Yours Sincerely,
Chandra Gupta
