Books for CXF web service

Apache CXF web service Development

Do you use Apache CXF? If so, you might take an interest in "Apache CXF Web Service Development".

The book does a good job of covering CXF use cases, going beyond the usual trivial Jax-WS examples. It also covers Jax-RS (RESTful) web services, and covers each in enough detail that you're likely to find what you need when working with CXF.

Jax-WS has largely demystified basic web service development, so there's a great amount of content on the web that will show you how to quickly annotate a POJO to get a web service up and running. But what if you need to do contract-first (top down) development? Lightweight resources often conveniently bypass this more difficult trail, but this book does a good job of handling it. (This is no great accomplishment for a book on web service development, but it does set the tone for the types of things this book will show.)

It also covers restful web services. I'd say a Java developer either currently using or wanting to use Apache CXF. The book isn't a complete reference for CXF, but it does introduce all the important topics. Once introduced, there's enough content to either solve your problem or at least educate you enough to effectively research what remains.

This book can be found here.
