UDDI, SOAP, and WSDL : The Web Services Specification Reference Book
If you want to build e-business apps., a few tools must be ready. Some of these tools are the officially sanctioned specifications for UDDI, ebXML and SOAP. Here, in one volume, PH PTR and Aaron Walsh have bound the most important specifications for e-business developers. In addition to providing the specifications, the book provides useful introductory material to each specification, and a design that allows for in-text "hyperlinking" between documents.
