Wiley India Pvt. Ltd., 2010. Softcover. New. This book explains the principles and practice of Web services to students of computer science and developers of modern software systems. It presents the necessary concepts, architectures, theories, techniques, standards, and infrastructure to employ Web services for software systems.
