Spring Web Services is a product of the Spring community focused on creating document-driven Web services.
Spring Web Services aims to facilitate contract-first SOAP service development, allowing for the creation of flexible web services using one of the many ways to manipulate XML payloads.
This comprehensive guide -- which provides professional expertise on a variety of technical topics right from setting-up a contract-first Web-Service, creating client of a Web-Service to serialization, monitoring, testing and security using Spring-WS -- helps you enhance your skills in Spring Web Services.
Spring Web Services 2 Cookbook includes a wide variety of recipes that covers most important topics used in real-world applications. It is a well-rounded guide covering a lot of ground in the Spring Web Services domain using systematic arranged chapters and focused recipes.
