Presentation: Scott Davis on Real World Web Services

Bookmarks

In this presentation, recorded at the No Fluff Just Stuff symposium, Scott Davis provides a pragmatic, down-to-earth introduction to Web services as used in the real world by public sites, including SOAP-based, REST and POX-style examples. While the buzzword density leaves nothing to be desired, the presentation contains a very accessible introduction to the core Web services standards and alternatives.

Scott Davis is an author and independent consultant who has worked on a variety of Java platforms, from J2EE to J2SE to J2ME. Scott is the co-author of JBoss At Work, Google Maps API and GIS for Web Developers, and the Editor in Chief of aboutGroovy.com.

    Scott, thank you so much for posting that talk. I learned a lot about the difference between SOAP and REST. I also enjoyed learning about Client/SOA and what an ESB is.

    For sure he tries to be entertaining and I do not want to dismiss his ability to be so, but he could have made his point in one fourth of the time used. He talks from a personal and programmers point of view. You get to know this guy really, but the question is do you want to? :)
    Sorry, I didn't. On top of that I got very irritated just by his tone of voice which is always making the same kind of transition from whispering something to shouting it..

    As a student lost in the buzzwords, I liked his presentation very much. He reviewed the buzzwords giving some clear definitions (which are rare), and then comparing "traditional" web services with REST, giving his opinion. If that was his goal, it was achieved.

    I think the problem here is that the title was poorly chosen. The content of the presentation is much better described by the subtitle of it.
