Catel et Bocquet retracent le destin de la fascinante Joséphine Baker dans un magnifique roman (bio)graphique tout en noir et blanc. En 500 pages, les auteurs nous dévoilent toutes les facettes de cette femme emplie de convictions : muse de nombreux artistes, militante contre la ségrégation raciale, agent du contre-espionnage de la France Libre, mère adoptive d’une douzaine d’enfants venus d’horizons divers… elle était décidément bien plus qu’une danseuse de cabaret affublée d’une ceinture de bananes...
It's no secret that web services continue to be one of the mort hyped, most touted, and most popular developments in network computing over the last five years. However, with hundreds of specifications emerging, it's still unclear - and almost impossible - to turn REST, RDF, SOAP, XML, and the rest into something that's actually
useful. Finally, though, there is a clear, concise guidebook for java developers seeking to leverage
the power of web services, today: Real World Web Services. Real World Web Services dispenses with the idea that just because something is a specification, it must be used. Instead, a practical (and often critical) eye is applied to the problems facing Java developers. This book isn't about theory; instead, it focuses on using working web service APIs, from important industry players such as:
• CDDB (the database that powers Windows Media Player)
If you're a Java developer who wants to write code that works - and works today - this is the book for you. With eight extensive projects combining popular web service APIs, and code on every page, this book is for the Java journeyman. So toss out the 100-page specifications, and start doing real work, with Real World Web Services.
