Hi Balaji,

I dont think there is chance for taking SCJWSD without SCJP.
If you are an University student, and your Univesity joins SUN's SAI program, you can enjoy a 75% off discount for taking SCJP 1.4.
Hope this help.
Nick.

Hi Jean,

YES. I will have the IBM 486 on 14 March, and IBM 287 on 21 March. I prepared for SCBCD is because it is part of IBM 484 exam.
After Mar 31, I will focus on SCJWSD.

Hi Evelyn,
I am interested.

Though I don't consider myself as a top Webservices expert, I was responsible for webservices part of a project, where we transmitted embedded MS-Office and other Documents from Lotus Domino to another maschine with Tomcat & Sun Webservice Pack. The tomcat apps offered kind of convert-to-pdf, archiving and search services.

Know axis, too, and right now after nearly having passed all those IBM Enterprise Developer certifications, I am interested and do have energy to put some emphasis to deepen my existing theoretical knowledge in webservices.
regards Axel

The beta hasn't started yet and we don't know when it starts.
However, you can be sure that we'll announce any information we have in this forum.

Hi Jean,

If I need to take exams, my company allows me to leave sharply on time for 1 week, so that I can deploy myself into the study process everyday .

Folks, we have a new forum for the Web Services Certification. Even though this post is now obsolete, I'm moving it over there so that it can benefit to people taking the exam
Please continue the discussion there. Thank you
