> For Immediate Release
> June 21, 2002

> Sebastopol, CA--The Simple Object Access Protocol, or SOAP, is the
> latest in a long line of technologies for distributed computing.
> According to Robert Englander, author of "Java and SOAP" (O'Reilly,
> $39.95), SOAP differs from other distributed computing technologies
> that it is based on XML, and so far it has not attempted to redefine
> the computing world. SOAP specifications are not bound to any
> programming language, computing platform, or software development
> environment, although there are SOAP implementations that provide
> bindings for a number of languages, such as C#, Perl, and Java.
> these implementations, SOAP remains in the abstract: a concept
> manifestation. It is the bindings to a software development language
> that make SOAP come alive.
> Java is a natural for XML processing, and therefore perfect for
> building SOAP services and client applications. In fact, it is so
> natural a fit that much of the work being done with SOAP today is
> done in Java. "Java and SOAP" introduces the basics of SOAP: what it
> is, why it is being talked about, and what its features and
> capabilities are. If you are interested in building SOAP-aware
> in Java, this book is what you will need to get started.
> "This book delves deep into the development of Java software using
> SOAP, and also concentrates significantly on the actual SOAP XML
> messages that are generated and consumed," says Englander. "Most
> books provide more of an overview of the subject, without getting
> the depth that 'Java and SOAP' reaches.
> "I think it's extremely important for Java developers to understand
> this technology now whiles it's still emerging," Englander adds.
> time, SOAP will become a part of one or more larger protocols, so
> understanding how things work early on will be a great advantage."
> In addition to covering fundamentals, such as the structure of a SOAP
> message, SOAP encoding, and building simples services using RPC and
> messaging, "Java and SOAP" covers many topics that are essential to
> real-world development. The author explains how to add support for
> own object types, how to handle errors, add your own information to
> fault messages, and handle attachments. The book pays particular
> attention to how SOAP messages are encoded, showing how different
> of documents are used in practice as they are generated by the
> different APIs.
> "Java and SOAP" includes both the Apache SOAP tools and IBM web
> services toolkit, web services built over transports other than HTTP,
> and the use of Brazil as a small SOAP server. There are chapters on
> UDDI and WSDL. In addition, the book covers interoperability between
> the major SOAP platforms, including Microsoft's .NET. The book also
> provides previews of the forthcoming Axis APIs, JAX-RPC, and JAXM.
> This book was written for anyone interested in how to access
> web services in Java, as well as how to build SOAP-based services in
> Java. "Java and SOAP" includes everything that programmers, students,
> and professionals who are already familiar with Java will need to
> to start working with SOAP.
