Author: Ethan Cerami
Brand: Ethan Cerami

As a developer new to Web Services, how do you make sense of this emerging framework so you can start writing your own services today? This concise book gives programmers both a concrete introduction and a handy reference to XML web services, first by explaining the foundations of this new breed of distributed services, and then by demonstrating quick ways to create services with open-source Java tools.Web Services make it possible for diverse applications to discover each other and exchange data seamlessly via the Internet. For instance, programs written in Java and running on Solaris can find and call code written in C# that run on Windows XP, or programs written in Perl that run on Linux, without any concern about the details of how that service is implemented. A common set of Web Services is at the core of Microsoft's new .NET strategy, Sun Microsystems's Sun One Platform, and the W3C's XML Protocol Activity Group.In this book, author Ethan Cerami explores four key emerging technologies:

  • XML Remote Procedure Calls (XML-RPC)
  • SOAP - The foundation for most commercial Web Services development
  • Universal Discovery, Description and Integration (UDDI)
  • Web Services Description Language (WSDL)
For each of these topics, Web Services Essentials provides a quick overview, Java tutorials with sample code, samples of the XML documents underlying the service, and explanations of freely-available Java APIs. Cerami also includes a guide to the current state of Web Services, pointers to open-source tools and a comprehensive glossary of terms.If you want to break through the Web Services hype and find useful information on these evolving technologies, look no further than Web Services Essentials.

Q&A with William Penberthy, author of "Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications"

Q. Why is “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications” an important book for people to read right now?

A. We are hitting a cycle where more and more applications, both web-based and traditional client-based, are being replaced as they hit the end of their lifespan. There is also an industry trend toward trying to provide users with a single, web-based application that supports many different viewing platforms; including desktop, tablet, and mobile. ASP.NET MVC 4 provides support for all of these different clients out of the box with a powerful, yet extremely easy-to-use, platform that allows for rapid development and easy testing. ASP.NET MVC 4 also supports client side-technologies such as jQuery and Knockout.js that help developers build rich and interactive user interfaces. This book is timely because it takes a higher-level look at implementing the technology in the context of common business problems. It is not a coding book, but more of a design and approach book that helps experienced developers predict and manage potential problems.

Q. What will readers walk away with after reading “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications?”

A. The 70-486 is not a traditional Microsoft test, so this book is not a traditional exam prep guide. First and foremost, this book is designed to help experienced developers be successful when taking the test. After that, the most important information in the book revolves around the “when” and “how” various aspects of ASP.NET MVC 4 can be implemented. The book may not tell you how to do everything in ASP.NET MVC 4, it instead acts as a guide to what can be done and when a particular approach makes sense when looking at the bigger picture. ASP.NET is almost frighteningly flexible and customizable, if you can think of something that may need to be done; there is more than likely a way to do it.
