I was curious about this. Why did IBM retire XML Exam 140, and start the new one XML 141?
Is there a difference in content between the two?
Was there some content in Exam 140 that was obsolete? What?
thanks!

Hi,
To some extend yes it was out dated. DTD and non usage of Web services was the reason.
The new one contains Schema and Web Services with other stuffs in the syllabus.
Cheers.
