    Comments about oreilly Java Web Services: Up and Running, 2nd Edition:

    This the second edition of Java Web Services: Up & Running, this means updated content from previous one with .

    It's all about RESTful services nowadays and that's the main goal of this edition.

    So you will be reading about JSON, JAXB, SOAP, annotations with Jersey to fastrack development and many other features.

    To complete the world of web APIs, the master language is XML so be prepared to see many elements and attributes around ;-)

    This is for the fun and descriptive part.

    The less funny part but respectful and required is about Security, adn SSL protocol (httpS://...).

    I would recommend this easy-to-read and compact useful descriptive guide that will make you understand the underground of the web services with Java using technology.

    The book can be bought at http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920029571.do.

      Comments about oreilly Java Web Services: Up and Running, 2nd Edition:

      It has been recently released The second edition of Java Web Services: Up & Running, this means full new content (almost a trend in O'reilly Java titles), and not only an update of bugs and reader's comments.

      This new edition focuses in the (not new, but fashion) RESTful services. Today, it is clear the current trend is to use less restrictive REST services and lightweight JSON. Keeping most chapters under this context, it get along with examples and info about WADL, Security JSON, etc.

      Also, mentions different implementation Jersey, CXF, among others, so it reach a wider crowd for any doubts and details on these implementations. While in the client side has references to JAXB, Amazon, XStream, Axis.

      SOAP Handler, using JAX-WS handlers, shows examples in how an incoming/outcoming SOAP message can be handled to implement business logic in the middle of the conversation; very useful for some security constraint inside of a typical workflow.

      Last, but not Least, Security, another important tier on WS, it is covered with simple JAAS and SSL (or better said HTTPS), WS-Security.

      Interesting is to mention several (perhaps most important) Java Application Servers, because most examples are using Tomcat, however take time and space to describe tips on
      Source code, which is available to be downloaded from Git directly.

      At the end, similar to the first edition, a not-so deep introduction the current de facto spec for webservices, giving a compass a quick answer about it.

      Small and easy to read, not a cookbook, although several examples could be considered recipes.
