Hi

I saw that Java web services up and running book has got 2 editions. These editions have very different contents. 2nd edition of this book got released in Aug 2013.
I am confused whether should I read first edition or second edition of this book for my Java Web Service certification preparation. I am targeting JEE 6 web service exam.

Please help.

Thanks
Abhay Agarwal

Hi Abhay Agarwal,

I would go for the second edition. The first edition is more about SOAP web services and less about RESTful web services. From the table of contents of the second edition I can see that there is more REST and JAX-RS topics than in the 1st edition.

Regards,
Frits

Well, if you have the first edition, you can read another book called Restful Java with JAX-RS, which should give you enough information about REST in the exam.
A lot of ranchers read the first edition and they pass the exam.
The problem with the first edition is that there are a lot sample code that do not work. We are all struggling with those codes in this edition.
