First of all, Thanks to Ranchers for providing useful material/suggestions.
I have about one year experience in developing the web services (NOT using SUN JWSDP though, mostly Axis, Weblogic, Oracle9ias ..) and some experience with XML, JAXP, JAXB.. I never worked with JAXR,UDDI, WS-Security..
I spent about 2 months (4 hours a day, approximately) for the preparation.
- I did go through some parts of SOAP/WS-I Basic Profile/WSDL spec docs. But they are very exhaustive.. If you get time, just run though.. But most of the important rules are covered in XZYWS and Mikalai Zaikin Study material.
