This is a great book that explains Java Web services in a clear and concise manner.  Manny other topics that underpins the JWS technologies, such as security, SSL and certificates are explained very succinctly.

The book is also an easy read. Most of the examples do not get carried away in complexity, but rather stays right on target.

Good solid practical content for hands-on people, containing useful First Principle (without the fluff) examples.
