I'm wondering if anyone can help me to find a learning rescources that will get me up to speed with web services. I've got to create a 'simple' books web service from scratch and deploy it and develop a range of clients to access the data.
using Java code in Eclipse IDE. I have to implement operations like addBook, searchBook and listBooks and the bookInfo class has to have a variety of attributes like Name ob Book, Type and Author ect....
I need to create the web service on Google App Engine. Create options to return data in text, json and xml. Be able to access data using 'simple' http web service calls. Access data using REST interaction and create a AJAX based web front end to retrieve and display data in suitable format.
I use the terms 'simple' loosely here because I am not ofey with any of these methods I have to create.
I don't want an answer I want a useful resource to learn this all myself so I can do this assignment.
Really stressed out, every thing I've seen so far doesn't help me. I'm really bad at all this but need to become good.
Any advice and criticism is expected here. I just need so help if anyone knows any really good methods of learning I could try. I've tried many so far and none have sunk it in.
