Does the book include information about Sun's new JAX pack? I am just beginning to get into SOAP, and I typically like to get a book to help me with a new subject. Thanks.

It would have take time travel for me to include anything about SUN's new packaging of XML goodies (JAXP, JAXM, JAXR, JAX-RPC). I am in the middle of writing a proposal to write that book.
However, the examples in the book all use the JAXP parser, which is quite stable now.
My chapters on SOAP messaging (as opposed to HTTP and RPC) use JMS - Java Message Service, JavaSpaces and Java Mail - all Sun APIs.

The examples all use Apache SOAP 2.2 but I don't go into exhaustive listing of the API because I am sure that other implementations will take the place of Apache SOAP and I don't want the book to go out of date. Instead I try to explain basic principles as much as possible.

I've been meaning to learn what all this "SOAP" hype is about. This looks like the perfect book to get me started.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
