Hi All,

I have started reading RMH and finished two units in it. Now I have to start with UDDI unit. I would like to know how important this unit is for SCDJWS. What is the weightage for this unit in the exam, like how many questions can one expect to get in the test from UDDI?

I would also like to know to what extent does RMH cover, from SCDJWS examination point of view. For example, does RMH cover the "Security" section of the exam objectives etc.

Most of the objectives listed by Sun for SCDJWS use phrases such as "develop code", "explain", "describe" etc. Do they really expect what these phrases literally mean? I mean it is an objective exam right? So, I thought using such phrases is a bit confusing.

I need your precious comments and suggestions from all you wonderful people, especially those who have already succeeded in the exam.

Thanks and regards,
james edwin

As you might have seen in other threads, Security topic is not that detailed in RMH's book... You might have to find some other resources out there by yourself to cover that... Like Sun's Blueprint or some other Web Services book...

I do have a copy of RMH's book... I intend to go for the SCDJWS within the second quarter of this year....

I am currently preparing for the SCDJWS certification. I also have the RMH's text along with Mikalai's study guide and the Quiz.
RMH doesn't cover the security stuff, Mikalai's study guide and quiz do and do it well-enough for you to do well on the test.
My work is E Business Security therefore I have an extra motivation to learn this well.
By far the best book that I have found on Web Services Security is:

Securing Web Services with WS-Security
Jothy Rosenberg and David Remy

It is a SAMS publication and available on Amazon.

Hope this helps.
