hello, i am new to web services and need some advice on books which guides you through with some real coding examples(much like the head start books or the java certifications books).Most of the books on web servives are based on theory concepts. Most ppl prefer the RMH book , but i think its too theory based(or correct me if i am wrong as I have only read its reviews ).Also which application server is the most common and easy to use.
much like the head start books or the java certifications books
No such thing (yet).
but I think its (RMH) too theory based
Well yes, but that�s what you need for the "Sun Certified Developer for Java Web Services" preparation. This is the SCDJWS forum but I�m getting the impression that you may be looking for more "basic" material. If SCDJWS preparation is your motivation look at SCDJWS Links SCDJWS Specifications-Objectives Matrix And some of the links found in Preparing for SCDJWS.. Please help. If you are looking for something more general, then have a look at the topics in the Web Services forum like: Good Book for Web Services?
Also which application server is the most common and easy to use.
On the other hand Apache Axis is a popular SOAP stack for implementing Java Web Services. It isn�t an application server, but an add-on for a web-container to support the implementation of web services within that web-container (or the application server that the web-container belongs to)� Apache Axis can be used in combination with many web-containers/application-servers. Many application servers support web services (to a varying degree) right out of the box. Usually there is a whole spectrum of features that you use to pick a particular application server � web-services support is usually just one aspect. However if you only want to implement web services and you don�t want/need EJB support then often the Apache Tomcat/Axis combo will be sufficient (and easier).
