    This review is from: Imbibing Java Web Services: A Step by Step Approach for Learning Web Services (Paperback)
    Highlights of the book are
    – The Dispatcher and Provider-based web services examples are good.
    – The practice questions/answers at the end of each chapter are good.
    – Spring Web services and CXF chapters covered many examples.
    – SOAP-message monitoring is provided for all frameworks.
    – REST design scenarios are good. All REST annotations are demonstrated.
    – Spring web service using JAXB is an interesting example to try.
    – AXIS vs CXF comparison is good.
    – WSDL1.1 vs WSDL1.2 comparison is good.

    Lastly, the step by step working examples are best in this book. Also good reference for any web service certification.

    Decent Book, Could be Enhanced, March 10, 2013

    The text of the book is consistent and it reads well. The author strikes a good tone and gives a good “high-level ” list of things you need to do for each web service before diving in. I found a typo (or two) in the text, but not in the code that I could find.

    A few things I wish were better:

    1. Have a per-project Java source code project. The code for the book is combined into a huge download that’s confusing and difficult to work with. If you’re having configuration issues (see 2 below), this “source code” isn’t much help as it doesn’t include JAR files. It will save you some typing, of course.

    2. Since so many of these types of projects use Maven these days, this book should have included a step-by-step, walk-through in both Eclipse and Intellij (at least) on getting the project set up initially. Many of my problems getting the author’s code to work were my JAR files. The author may expect that you “know” Maven, but that’s not realistic when you’re at the same time, learning Web Services. I had strange errors that had nothing to do, seemingly, with missing or outdated JAR files. PLEASE…PLEASE….PLEASE focus on making sure your reader has the proper configuration first. Just saying you needed to use specific JARs is different then showing the reader how to set up the project.

    3. A small section on remote symbolic debugging within the IDE would have been nice as well.

    — ————

    All in all, I’m glad I got this book and would buy it again. It’s been helpful, though very frustrating due to project setup to get even the simplest example working. Nobody said learning was easy, of course, but it could have been easier with a little more attention to making sure the reader got things set up initially correctly.

    Other than these two items, I’d have given this book 5 stars.
