WebSphere Version 5.1 Application Developer 5.1.1 Web Services Handbook

An IBM Redbooks publication


This IBM Redbooks publication describes the new concept of Web services from various perspectives. It presents the major building blocks Web services rely on. Here, well-defined standards and new concepts are presented and discussed.

Whereas these concepts are described vendor-independent, this book also presents IBM’s view and illustrates with suitable demonstration applications how Web services can be implemented using IBM’s product portfolio, especially WebSphere Application Server Version 5.1 and WebSphere Studio Application Developer Version 5.1.1.

This book is a major update to the book Web Services Wizardry with WebSphere Studio Application Developer, SG24-6292, and to WebSphere Version 5 Web Services Handbook, SG24-6891-00.

This book is structured in two parts:

- Part 1 presents the underlying concepts for the use of Web services: It presents the basic programming model, well-known concepts in an updated way, and new concepts that go beyond the scope of the earlier books.

- Part 2 shows how Web services can be implemented using the latest IBM tools. Here we introduce a sample application that is demonstrated in various different ways.
