Web Services Strategies

Beyond the technology, IT strategies for implementation of Web services by Doug Kaye.

Security. The May 27, 2002 issue of eWeek contains four articles on web-services security. This one by Timothy Dyck illustrates the issues by getting into the differences between the competing standards, SAML and WS-Security.

developerWorks Newsletter. "...from tools, to demos, from code to education, and from articles to white papers," IBM has re-organized their free newsletter, a good source of web-services info from many sources. Until they update the supscription page, you've got to select "Web Services Technologies newsletter."

Eric Newcomer's Book. The new Understanding Web Services: XML, WSDL, SOAP, and UDDI, is one of the best books I've found to date on web services. It sits half way between what I call the protocol books (you know: the O'Reilly sea-creature series) and strategy books such as the one I'm currently writing. What impressed me most was the book's thoroughness. Although it's clearly aimed at developers and includes a fair number of XML examples, the book contains few code listings. (When you're ready for that, you need the sea-creature books.) Instead, Understanding Web Services gives equal time to technology, standards, strategies and Eric's own perspectives on the offerings of the major vendors. (Eric is the CTO of IONA.) If you want to know what web services are all about, with an emphasis on the technologies, this is the place to start. I only wish this book had been available when I was ramping up.
