These days I am going to learn web services from beginning in details and I have searched umpteen times for this purpose but there were few books and other resources about this and I do not know which one is more useful and the intresting thing was that
all of them were published 5 or 6 years ago and I am in doubt that is learning webservices useful at all now a days, if so, please help me to find good and helpful book in terms of web services ?

If you are using .net you should look into WCF instead of webservices, since that is the next step after webservices
Amazon provides a lot af books on that

Thanks to you but could you please introduce me that which book is better with the better source code?
for instanse I am a fan of asp.net Unleashed by stephen walter because it covers everything in detail and has a good source code.

I haven't read these books, but based on author books I have read, then I would choose either
but it is only a recommendation based on other books and not the ones in question

The last question can I use wcf in web or it is for desktop application?(I ask this because the title starts with windows ...)

That's the beauty with wcf that it can be used with both windows and web apps, as opposed to webservices which where focused on web apps (again I cannot assure you that the books will solve your needs as I have not read them myself)

learning webservices is always. It will take only 3-4 days for you to lrearn websirvice .
after that u can go for wcf..

Thanks Dahla and hi
First thanks to you for participating in this post then if webservice is always why there is no new published book for them and is wcf used as an alternative of webservice or are they different from each other?(I want to khnow why you suggest both of them)

HI I am suggesting you to learn webservice because
1. it will not take much time to learn
2. sometime you may need to work on old application in which you may be u have to work on webservice.

u can also use webservice with both windoiw and web application.
i have used webservice with both window and web application.

You can consume a webservice using both a windows app or some website, but using wcf you can expose the webservice logic that you can create as i.e. a remoting service using simple configuration logic.
So in short wcf simply builds upon the regular the webservice logic and adds more features. So off course you look at webserivces first, then it will provide some grounding, but wcf should cover that ground + more

yes that's why I was saying that first read some webservice and when have some idea about then next we can go for WCF.
