Does anyone know the difference between these two tests? I can't find anything definitive about the new test vs. the old anywhere...

Well, the Whizlabs practice test that is available is still 141. This is what they replied in my inquiry to them about the 142 exam:

"Yes our preparation kit is XML 141. Right now we are not going to release the exam 142. Once we release that I would you know.(sic)"

Maybe at some point they will have the new one out.

I compared the objectives of [[http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/obj141.shtml][Test 141]] with [[http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/tests/obj142.shtml][Test 142]].

The differences are
  • Test 141

  • [list] In Section 1 the objective <code>< Know basics of Web Services (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI) </code> is listed here, but not in Test 142.
  • In Section 2 the objectives G and H are dropped.
  • In Section 3 the objectives D and E are dropped.
  • In Section 4 the objectives D and E are dropped.
  • Test 142

  • In Section 1 the XQuery is added as an objective in item B. Furthermore, the objective F <code>Implement Java classes through XML binding via Java Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB) </code> is new.
  • In Section 2 the objective E has the additionaal objectives <code>[elements vs attributes, best practices], data types, data relationships</code>.
  • In Section 3 the objective E and F are new.
  • In Section 5 the objective B, F, G and H are new A
  • In Section 5 the objective A has the additional objective XSLTC.

  • [/LIST]

    So on the whole there are at least differences in the objective list .

    I have not looked deeper to the differences. To stress what it means, the consequences.
