Our customer reviews

In general, this book is definitely a spring-web services recipes for beginner, in a high level which a bunched examples using 2 main things: spring + web-service. For my perspective, It's oriented for beginner users who wants start to considerer spring which one way to implement web-services but in my case I'll expected more advanced scenarios and dig deeper into both technology. Apart from that there are some improvement points that I'm mentioning below: * I suggested add an introduction in web service and every specification involved like UDDI, SOAP, WSDL, JAX-RPC/JAX-WS. * I suggested add in every recipes why should be good implementation in that way. * I suggest add a chapter for SCM and versioning of web services. * I suggest add a chapter with most of important classes mentioned in the book with a briefly explanation. * I suggested add an introduction of concept of each recipes examples mentioned in the book too. * I suggested review some chapters against: o Chapter1 and Chapter2 add more references and better explanation. o Chapter4 o Chapter7 : It need a clear comparison about which converter is most suitable in each case according performance, interoperability, extensibility, o Chapter9: It should be outside the main chapter of the book, could be an extra chapter at the end of its to introduce us rest service with spring. Apart from that, there are some parts wich need revision against or add more explaination more about: handler, resolver, exception, converter, media type, content-negotiation and so on. * The examples NEED pay attention about code formatter because it's poor. * The example and command we must ensure that it's run properly like we referred in the book. * The examples also need to add comments and more clear explanation about how can we run, especially thinking in another scenario than default. For example in each example say: run this command line: "mvn .... Tomcat:run" but this case expected everything run properly in default port 8080 but should be considered how someone could change and run in different port or another configuration.show more

I downloaded this book and the price was reasonable. I took the code samples and was able to get it running on the command line without much trouble, although I had some previous maven, tomcat and java experience. However, compared to other books I have used for learning java technologies, this code sample seemed to have no errors or issues. That was refreshing to me. Possibly because there are no external database dependencies. Getting the code to run is helpful for starters. I recommend importing the projects into eclipse so that you can really view the code better and examine the Spring rest Templates functionality. We found importing the code to eclipse by following the instruction in the book took a very short time. Once within eclipse it was much easier to inspect the code. I especially liked the cookbook parts describing use of XML Beans tools and marshallers. And other open source java/XML marshalling libraries. We used Google Wiztools rest client for interacting with the Spring Web Services server . Found this to be superior than the Firefox plug-in described in the book. Overall found the book to be very helpful and it may provide some techniques that will help me improve the way I build and deploy restful web services at my job.show more
