I am having problems opening this in openoffice -this is the first 
spreadsheet I have encountered that is so troublesome. Perhaps some 
other intermediate format, like our friend XML, may work better.

One thing that is good to track is Axis version; the further from 
current a book is, the less useful it will be. The other thing is 
whether it covers Axis at all, & if so, how many pages. I'd also argue 
that a broad coverage of UDDI counts against a book, but that is just 
personal prejudice. I score books down that do that because it means 
they tend to go overboard on theory 'a frictionless web service 
ecosystem', rather than reality 'getting arrays of ulongs from .net to 
java consistently'. Same goes for RDF coverage. But Glenn's book has 
bits of both in, showing that some books can overcome their handicaps.

Maybe we should list topic areas that are of interest and mark which 
books cover it

-installation/configuration of Axis on a server
-JAX-RPC
-WSDL
-UDDI
-Interop
-Attachments
-incorporation of axis into own webapps
-handlers
-serialization/deserialization
-debugging
-security

...etc
