Java Web Service Book Recommendation

Hello,

my company is converting our old HP database system to Oracle database/server. I am looking for some books that can help me get familiar with Java Web Services. I want to use the latest Java.

If anyone owns/knows a good book to recommend is very appreciated. Also, I would like to get a book regarding security in Java Web Service.


Thank you.

    Three words: Amazon.com user reviews. They've never let me down yet.

    Note that the online documentation is absolutely not bad at all and the internet is riddled with examples; I managed to figure it all out without the help of a book.

    JAX-WS: https://metro.java.net/discover/
    JAX-RS: https://jersey.java.net/nonav/documentation/latest/index.html

    Of course these are only the reference implementations. Many people choose to use Apache Axis 2 in stead of Metro for example, which has its own (rich) documentation, user base and forums.
