I would like to ask involved experts if
The Java(TM) Web Services Tutorial (as of December 17, 2003)
would suffice for BETA exam preparation?
Or a more advanced reading is required to successfully pass BETA exam? In latter case, which book would best complement Sun's tutorial?
Thank you in advance!
Seid

Please note that I was not recommending those books for the certification! Having said that, I do believe they are one of the best for the certification exam as well. Another book you should take a look at is Ray Lai's J2EE Platform Web Services.

I think The Java(TM) Web Services Tutorial should be good enough for you to prepare the beta exam, if you really understand all the content in the tutorial.

I dont agree. It is good enough for the API section of the objectives.

It should be good enough for the API section i.e. JAX-RPC, SAAJ etc but it does not cover security,XML schema,SOAP,WSDL,SOA architecture ,right? :roll:

Anyone has a list of specs and other documents (and their corresponding URLs) that are most likely to be required reading ?
- XML 1.1 (http://www.w3.org/TR/xml11)
- XML Schema (http://www.w3c.org/TR/xmlschema-0/, http://www.w3c.org/TR/xmlschema-1/, http://www.w3c.org/TR/xmlschema-2/)
- ...
Thanks
Jorge

Hi,
Just want your views/comments on this book for SCDJWS:
J2EE and XML Development by Kart A. Gabrick, David Weiss
Does this book sufficiently cover all the Topics for the certification or one needs another book.
I am not able to find: J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson-Haefel in India.
Pls advise. Which book is the best one to follow and covers the complete syllabus.


SCJP1.4, SCWCD1.4 (preparing)
