The target audience of the book is web service developers. Prior knowledge of JAX-WS web services including the
wsimport tool and the Ant task is required. The book is also suitable for developers who want to learn about some of the new features in Java 7. If you use NetBeans-Glassfish for Java EE development you would be interested in how the new
wsimport clientjar option may be leveraged to simplify web service development.
