About this book

Web Service Patterns: Java Edition describes architectural patterns that can guide you through design patterns (service implementation and usage) and illustrates the different ways in which you can use web services.

Author Paul Monday had two primary goals in writing this book: to show some interesting design patterns that are applicable to web services as well as the broader computing community and to give some hands-on experience using a web service environment.

Monday achieves the first goal by presenting many original, and a few already available, design patterns. The patterns he chooses to discuss illustration the entire web service environmentfrom the patterns that make up web service implementation platforms to the patterns for building your own web services. Each pattern covered has a web service implementation section that builds a common application throughout the book.

To fulfill the second goal of providing hands-on experience with web services, Monday chose a single web service environment, Apache Axis, and implemented each pattern using this environment.

By the end of this book, you'll have deployed more than 15 working web service implementations that show the strengths and weaknesses of web services.

About the authors

Paul B. Monday is a software architect working for Sun Microsystem's Network Storage Division. During graduate school at Washington State University, he created the System V File system implementation for the early Linux operating system (prior to the 1.0 kernel). At IBM, Paul worked on projects to find mechanisms and approaches for reusing software efficiently. After IBM, Paul worked for Imation Corporation as an architect and project leader for a series of projects involving device management and network appliances. While there, Paul led an effort to build a network appliance based entirely on open-source software. Since Imation, Paul has worked on a variety of architecture projects relating to enterprise software. Paul is the coauthor of two books, The San Francisco Component Framework: An Introduction, and The Jiro Technology Programmer's Guide and Federated Management Architecture.
