Hi Artemesia,

The quick answer is, Yes, you can run web services on Tomcat.

To run web services on Tomcat, besides Tomcat, you need Axis toolkit installed on your machine. The short tutorial gets you started with Tomcat and Axis.

Hi All,

Is there anyone who shows interests in this week's giveaway - Service-Oriented Architecture : Concepts, Technology, and Design?

I am wondering who should buy this book, architects, programmers, even non-IT professionals?

I am guessing that the forum XML and related technologies should be the best one to raise your question.

Hi All,

I am reading a SOA programming model series on developerWorks (SOA series).

In the first article, the authors say that:

The IBM� programming model for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) enables non-programmers to create and reuse IT assets without mastering IT skills. ... This article series describes a new Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) programming model that achieves a separation of concerns so that persons with different skill levels and roles in the enterprise, not necessarily IT professionals, can create and use IT assets throughout every stage of the software development life cycle.



Is that really true? Any of your comments is highly welcome.

Yes. Ulf Dittmer hits it.

To play with Axis will give you a good ground for learning Web services.

Here is a quick tutorial which getS you started with Axis and SOAP: Part I and Part II.

Absolutely.
In fact, there are many bad practice among some Java programmers(including me). To be a professional, we should do exceptions handling professionally.

I wonder is this book also covering bad practice in Design and Architecture?

Hi All,

I am expecting FireFox to open a new Tab instead of a new Window when I click a link (e.g. a link on this page). How can I achieve that?

Hi John & Jeanne,

In my company, most web designers are comfortable with Dreamweaver too.
Looking forward to a DreamWeaver with enablement of JSF!

Ant sucks! But be cautious that depoyment work may be product dependent. For example, to deploy app. to Websphere need additional work than Tomcat.

Why a book on big picture???



I think a book on big picture fits into the market, because the whole J2EE thing is so complex, and need to be broken down into smaller digestible chunks. I am afraid just one presentation doesn't work.

The book is more of concept and technology, so it involves no container. In fact, you can find tons of books on specific containers.

Hi,

Reading a spec give you exact inside of a J2EE technology, which may take you long time by reading books or playing with a developer tool. Although it may frustrate you at the very beginning.

Are these A-TRIP principles applied to Function Test or System Test?

Do you have some plan to write for programmers using scripting language in their daily life? Maybe your Automation book of this kit will cover that topic?
