Course Description

Web services standards such as SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI are XML-based. This course will examine XML and how to manipulate it from within Java applications using JAXB Java Architecture for XML Binding. It will go on to overview SOAP and demonstrate how to use JAX-WS the Java API for XML Web Services to generate web services that can be used for Java EE applications. The course will also cover how to create web service clients using both Java EE and Java SE.
