Hello,

Is your book covering also the WS domain? Most of the web services tutorials/documentations provide only the clasical add(a,b) sample. Very interesting would be to know how to:
- use a POJO as a web service interface
- use a POJO as a parameter or a return value in a web service
- in the line above, usage of class hierarchies, especially when abstract classes are involved
- use lists, arrays, sets.

For me these issues were solved using the XFire servlet within a servlet container. Is any J2EE server, particulary GlassFish capable of providing these functionality out of the box and in a consistent manner? Consistent I mean I have about 40 POJOs, generated from an UML model, and I do not want to re-write the WSLD or any other descriptor file when we change the model.

Razvan,

The book covers Web service development, including exposing POJOs as web services.

The classic "add" example is included (I didn't have the heart to leave it behind ), but other topics are also covered, including exposing EJBs as web services, adding attachments to web services calls, etc.

There is at least one person that thinks the web services coverage is excellent.
