Designing Web Services with the J2EE 1.4 Platform:  JAX-RPC, SOAP, and XML Technologies
  • Author: Singh, Brydon, Murray, Ramachandran, Violleau, Stearns
  • Format: HTML
  • Price: free

This book describes designing Web services using the current technologies available with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition. This book and the accompanying Java Adventure Builder Reference application (hereafter referred to as adventure builder) are part of the successful Java BluePrints program created by Sun Microsystems with the introduction of the J2EE platform. Application architects, developers, and students everywhere have used this program to better understand the programming model inherent in the J2EE platform.

Rather than providing information on how to use individual Java technologies to write applications, which falls within the realm of the companion Java Tutorial program, the Java BluePrints focuses on guidelines for application architecture and design, such as distributing J2EE application functionality across tiers and choosing among design options for Web services endpoints. This book describes the Web services and related technologies of the J2EE platform. Its focus is how to best apply these J2EE platform technologies to writing Web service applications. This book assumes that you have a basic knowledge of the J2EE platform, which you can get from The J2EE Tutorial, and is meant to be read in conjunction with Designing Enterprise Applications with the J2EE Platform, Second Edition, since that book covers the J2EE platform technologies for writing traditional enterprise applications.

This book is intended primarily for enterprise architects and application developers engaged in or considering writing Web services and Web service applications with the J2EE platform. It is also useful for product vendors interested in developing Web service applications consistent with the J2EE platform standard.

Chapters include:

  • Introduction
  • Standards and Technologies
  • Service Endpoint Design
  • XML Processing
