Hi Bill,
Of course this is not a reply but a question..
Actually 2..
1) What is the target audience of your book ?
Is it for entry level guys or gurus ?
As a newbie in the soap world, I wonder if it can be useful for me.
2) I guess there are some SOAP exemples in the book.
My understanding is that to run some Soap code, you need an appServer wich include "soap features".
Which App server are you examples for ?
Or are they generic enough to work on IBM, BEA, Oracle, Sybase etc..
Thanks.

Good question.
The target is entry level with respect to SOAP, but it expects you to know something about XML and Java.
Most of the examples use the Apache SOAP project which is implemented as servlets, so you need a servlet engine such as Tomcat (what I used). According to the Apache SOAP users mailing list, people are using it on a variety of appServers.
SOAP does require a current XML parser due to the extensive use of namespaces.
You don't have to have a web server to use SOAP,
the examples for messaging have simple stand alone servers.
Bill
