Java SOA Cookbook: SOA Implementation Recipes, Tips, and Techniques
by Eben Hewitt
This book offers practical solutions and advice to programmers charged with implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in their organization. Instead of providing another conceptual, high-level view of SOA, this cookbook shows you how to make SOA work. It's full of Java and XML code you can insert directly into your applications and recipes you can apply right away. The text focuses primarily on the use of free and open source Java Web Services technologies--including Java SE 6 and Java EE 5 tools--but you'll find tips for using commercially available tools as well.
