Dear Val and Kiran,

According to you, what's the best approach
to tackle webservices. I mean, what do you
think the amount of experience should be and
in which particular subjects?

Cheers,

Gian

Hi,

The time it takes to prepare for the exam varies from person to person, based on their familiarity with Web Services.

Having prior experience is always a plus, however it is possible to clear this exam with proper study of all the exam objectives. One should try to avoid attempting the exam if he is not confident with all the exam objectives.

Here are the exam objectives:
XML Web Service Standards
SOAP 1.1 Web Service Standards
Describing and Publishing (WSDL and UDDI)
JAX-RPC
SOAP and XML Processing APIs (JAXP, JAXB, and SAAJ)
JAXR
J2EE Web Services
Security
Developing Web Services
General Design and Architecture
Endpoint Design and Architecture

Regards,
Kiran

Thanks Kiran,

Personally webservices fall in the mid-term planning.
Before that ICED is the first mayor thing to be tackled.
My impression is that ICED might give me a good core
knowledge.

Cheers,

Gian

In my opinion SCDJWS and ICED(IBM Certified Enterprise Developer) are two different things. To gain sound knowledge of Web Services, SCDJWS is the way to go.

Hi,

Sorry, I meant ICED as core knowledge
to tackle webservices afterwards.

If I don't have any experience with webservices before but study from all the exam objectives, Can I pass the exam?

Of course, Surasak... Have a look at that thread, in which Val is talking about the way to pass the SCDJWS exam even for newbies... I do believe that Val's words will encourage those who are new to web services technology to tackle for the exam...

In addition to ICED, you might consider ICSD (WS) as another alternative. SCDJWS test on core concepts, while IBM 288 tests on both core concepts and WSAD usage.
