Book review #2

[Follow-up from previous post]

Technical Book

Web Services : Author by Gustavo Alonso, Fabio Casati, Harumi Kuno, and Vijay Machiraju.

Comment : This book is really good for people who are new to web services and references as well. It explain the history of System architecture to current web services. Since this book is kind like a bit extreme technical like RFC specification and no practical solution at all. It introduce SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, 1 to N tier architecture, web service compsition, BPEL, WS-Security, WS-transaction, WS-routing, and more ws-*.

The first 1-4 chapters were about the enterprise system era before web services was introduced. You can got a big picture why integration and interoperability was so hard at that era.
Chapter 5-6, slowly walk through the needs of web services and chapter 7-9 were mainly about web service composition and BPEL was introduced.

Although i finish reading this book, i only get half of its content because this book was too technical for beginner. You had to understand each design behind the system before proceed to the next chapters. If you want to learn web services and don’t know where to start, then this book might help you.
